…and gets an awesome picture with the big man himself. Really, I think the picture is great, so I posted it thinking Ross might not do it himself.
So Ross, when you get a chance edit this post and tell us how the evening went. The floor is yours….
I wish I had more time to give you all a full report, but that will have to wait until tomorrow.
Here are just a few quick tidbits:
-800-900 books were signed Governor Romney in my estimation. Articles like this say 450 people showed up which isn’t accurate because most people left as soon as their book was signed, but people were flowing into the store all night long. That’s why Mitt had to stay a full two hours.
-I was told that this was the first stop that continued to grow in size after it started. (People that were in the area either heard about it after it had started or regular shoppers at this Borders stopped in and decided to buy a book and get it signed since Mitt was there and it was such a great opportunity.)
-There was decent news coverage.
-If anyone didn’t already know this, Birmingham is where Mitt grew up, and some of his family were in attendance – like his sister.
-We had plenty of volunteers and people kept asking us how they could get the volunteer shirt we all we wearing.

Mitt also stopped in Grand Rapids the day after he was in Birmingham:
