Riding with McCain – Enthusiasm in Defiance and Joe The Plumber

October 31, 2008

Reuters Boston staff photographer Brian Snyder is traveling with Republican U.S. presidential nominee John McCain through election day November 4. He and his colleague Jason Reed traveling with the Obama campaign are posting daily blog entries sharing their experiences and favorite pictures of the day from their campaign coverage.

One of the very first frames that I exposed on the McCain campaign this morning also turned out to be one of my favorites of the day. The Defiance, Ohio high school band lined up for Senator McCain’s entrance for his first early morning campaign rally of the day and showed more than a little enthusiasm.

However, later in the day, good old “Joe the Plumber” himself was trotted out to actually join Senator McCain on the campaign trail and lend his support and those images will surely totally overshadow the ones that we made earlier.
