Presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan (R-WI) were greeted by an overflow crowd of supporters at a GOP rally at the Harris Pavilion in Manassas, Virginia on Saturday afternoon, August 11, 2012. Romney's stop in Manassas was part of a bus tour of battleground states that started in Norfolk earlier in the morning when Romney introduced Ryan as his running mate. The candidates spoke of change, turning around the economy and removing the hindrance of “Obamacare” on small businesses. Local law enforcement estimated the number that showed up for the rally to be as high as 10,000, and it was clear that many in the well manered crowd had to be turned away from the small Harris Pavillion. Wait times to go thru security were as high as 2-3 hours. The event was scheduled for 3:45 PM but the candidates didn't speak until after 5 PM. Also speaking at the rally were Senatorial candidate former Gov. George Allen, Governor Bob McDonnell, Delegate Barbara Comstock, Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling and Congressman Frank Wolf.
