Yesterday, I received an unexpected phone call from Bob Corso, one of the anchors at WHSV-TV 3. I was told that they were looking for two people to come on the air for the evening news to talk about Virginia’s March 6th primary; one to discuss the merits of Ron Paul, the second to speak in favor of Mitt Romney. I was told that Harrisonburg Vice-Mayor Ted Byrd would be representing Mitt Romney on tonight’s segment.
Although I have had very little experience with television, I was happy to get the offer. After all, how many chances does one get to promote their principles and candidates to such a large audience?
Therefore, about two hours later, I found myself in the TV studio. All of a sudden, there I was, in front of a camera. Was I nervous? Of course I was, but not so much for myself; it was mainly out of concern for saying the wrong thing and diminishing Ron Paul’s chances here in the Valley. Nevertheless, I offered my thoughts regarding the race. I must confess that I thought the process would be done over several takes, but instead it was all recorded as one; there was no room for error.
Thanks to Bob Corso, TV-3, and also to Suzanne Obenshain for recommending me to participate in this opportunity.
I hope you enjoy this video. But more importantly, I hope it it inspires Virginians up and down the Valley to go out and vote for Ron Paul on Tuesday!
