I know this is bound to anger some of the members and attract some trolls, but the Washington Times reports that the membership of the group Rolling Thunder which sponsors the annual rally in DC, arguably the largest annual rally in the Capital has voted to endorse Mitt Romney’s candidacy for the president. I doubt that at this point it will change much.
According to the release, 90 percent of conference delegates voted in favor of Mr. Romney, a decision that Executive Director Artie Muller attributed in part to their dissatisfaction with current health-care costs and quality of benefits for veterans returning from Afghanistan.
The Rolling Thunder motorcycle ride has become a staple of the Memorial Day weekend in Washington, drawing an estimated 400,000 riders this year during a weekend full of vigils, concerts, speeches and other events.
The group is mostly veterans, but not completely. I’d say that 90% of the delegates was pretty convincing.
