At the Wulsin party
Carrie Whitaker reports:
A jazz band made up of Xavier students serenaded the crowd of about 50 Victoria Wulsin supporters in the vaulted covered courtyard of Arnold’s on Eighth Street as they waited for the 2nd District congressional candidate.
Wulsin is expected to arrive around 9:45 p.m. No vote tallies have yet been released. The atmosphere is relaxed, with people drinking and eating a spread of appetizers. The front of the bar and restaurant are nearly empty.
When you walk into the court yard you’re likely to be greeted by volunteer Nellye Bowen of Clermont County, Wulsin sticker in hand.
"Dr. Wulsin is the kindest, most compassionate person I’ve ever met," said Bowen, who is on the executive committee of the Clermont County Democratic Party. "When you work with her you feel lifted up – like a current."
I’d say the majority of the people here are 40-60 years old, with some younger supporters sprinkled through the crowd. The youngest are the band on stage. The saxophone player is one of Wulsin’s volunteers.
