CINCINNATI ENQUIRER: 30,000 jam West Chester to hear Romney:

The presidential race returned to Ohio for the final push Friday as GOP challenger Mitt Romney held a massive rally in the Republican heartland north of Cincinnati and President Barack Obama cut a swath through central Ohio.

Romney spoke to a crowd of 30,000, according to West Chester Fire chief Tony Goller – making it the largest rally of the campaign, said Romney spokesman Chris Maloney.

Stacy McCain spots a AP journalist trying to low-ball the headcount — and not the first time his numbers came in considerably lower than the local media coverage of a Romney event.

That same AP reporter is also claiming that “energy level [is] low” among attendees — it certainly didn’t look that way in any of the photos of the event that I’ve seen, but then, this isn’t the first time that AP reportage of the mood at a  GOP event has been corrected by those of citizen journalists were also there.

(Speaking of photos, Stacy promises more later on his Website.)
