|Sept. 8, 2016 - State and county
fairs offer parties and candidates a good opportunity to spread their
messages, and for the candidates themselves there's always the question
of what to see and what to eat. For state and local candidates
and offiicials a fair provides an opportunity talk with visitors in an
informal setting, but for major party presidential or vice presidential
candidate visits crowd control becomes a concern. Parties line up
volunteers to work the booths and provide literature on their various
candidates, and sometimes buttons and other items for sale.
