OC Talk Radio Attends Rick Perry Rally

Fresh from his first appearance in a Republican debate, Gov. Rick Perry, the current front runner for the GOP nomination, held his first rally here in Orange County on Thursday, September 8th at Rogers Gardens in Corona Del Mar.  Hosted by the OC Republican Party and longtime Republican activist Gavin Herbert (the owner of Rogers Gardens), what was originally envisioned as a quick “meet and greet” for the candidate following his appearance the night before at the MSNBC/Politico debate in Simi Valley (at the Reagan Library), quickly became a raucus, standing room only event (and the toughest ticket in town to get).

National media swarmed to cover the candidate’s first “post debate” appearance and OC Talk Radio was proud to be among them in the coveted, cordoned off, media corner.  Our field producer Chuck Gibson (co-host of our popular OPEN MIC show every Wednesday from 2-3pm PST with Jim Schmitt, Editor and Publisher of the Ladera Times) was privilaged to represent us and to capture some audio interviews (which he’ll share on next week’s program). “It was a highly charged event,” reports Chuck from inside the tightly controlled press area, “full of lots of people and lots of enthusiasm.”

Orange County Republican Party Chairman Scott Baugh appeared on stage in support of Perry – a shift from Baugh’s leading role in support of Mitt Romney in 2008. Additional opening remarks included Orange County Supervisor Shawn Nelson (another former OC Talk Radio guest) with commentary strongly supporting Governor Perry. To read more about the event, pick up a copy of next month’s Octorber issue of THE LADERA TIMES or tune into OC Talk Radio next week from 2-3pm as Chuck and Jim discuss the impact of this event and his initial rections to Gov. Ric Perry’s first appearance before the OC Republican faithful.
