RFK, Jr. Draws Biggest Crowd Ever to Scott Brown's ‘No B.S. BBQ’ Campaign Event

NHJournal reports:

The “No B.S. BBQ” hosted by former GOP U.S. Senator Scott Brown and his wife Gail Huff Brown — a Republican candidate for Congress in 2022– has emerged as a must-stop for GOP presidential candidates in New Hampshire. Nearly every Republican in the race has made an appearance this cycle, and former President Donald Trump is rumored to be planning a stop as well.

More than 500 people came to see Vivek Ramaswamy at the Rye, N.H. event last month, the largest crowd to date, Brown told NHJournal. But the RFK, Jr. crowd was more than twice that size.

“This is an amazing crowd. I’ve never had a crowd like this ever, so congratulations,” Brown told Kennedy as the crowd cheered.

Brown put the attendance at around 1,200 or so, but he said local police estimated it was closer to 2,000.

The populist Democrat rejected claims from the Biden administration that “Bidenomics” has created a prosperous economy, noting that America’s poverty rate recently spiked. It was a reference to a new report from the U.S. Census Bureau that the percentage of Americans living in poverty jumped from 7.8 percent in 2021 to 12.4 percent last year.

“I’m running against two presidents who both are claiming they brought prosperity to America. But when I say to people, ‘Are you experiencing prosperity?’ they feel like they’re being gaslighted.”
