Major candidates due at Capital Rally

Published 12:00 am Sunday, September 28, 2003

A little over a year ago, it was just a small rally set to be held in a flat-bed pickup truck.

Over time, it grew into a major, all-out political festival featuring then-exploratory gubernatorial candidates, as well as those vying for the U.S. Senate and state legislature. An estimated 1,200 people filled the Old Capitol grounds to take part in the event.

Now, the Capital Rally, which features all the staples of a community fall festival combined with political stump speaking, will return to the grounds of the Old Capitol. This year the rally’s planners are predicting it will be even bigger than last year.

All candidates for state offices, including the candidates for judge of the Court of Appeals, will take part in the event.

Only Richie Farmer, a Republican running for commissioner of agriculture, will not be present, according to Kathy Carter, one of the rally’s early masterminds.
