UPDATE: The principal organizer for the Mansfied event just wrote me to say that it was a tremendous success:
I follow your blog and was the local guy on the scene to pull it all together and I just wanted to tell you the Brown visit to Mansfield was great. Max thrilled the crowd a number of times, and Brown did as well. Crowd of approx 125+ was a broad mixture of veterans and loyal party supporters. Comments afterwards were all very positive.
If you're in the Cincinnati area right now, head on over to the event at 5:00 at the public library!
