Tampa Family Takes Multi-Camera Approach at Paul Ryan Rally
The Bryan Anderson family of Tampa will upload their home video to share with out-of-state relatives who also support the Romney-Ryan ticket. The Andersons are family business owners who say they're worse off now than four years ago.
One camera was not enough for the Anderson family of Tampa, who was on a mission to make a great home-video of the Paul Ryan rally Saturday.
The family stood in the middle of the crowd at R.E Olds Park in Oldsmar with their cameras pointed toward the center of the stage where the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee was scheduled to address the crowd. Bryan Anderson, 46, manned a videocamera mounted on a tripod that offered a bird's eye view above the crowd. His daughter, Lyndsey, 8, used a cell phone to record, while wife Andrea, 45, and son Kevin, 13, looked on.
Bryan Anderson plans to upload the completed video to YouTube, so it can be shared with out-of-state family members who also support Romney. However, for Anderson, the rally meant more than just making a video.
"I'm here to support my candidate, Mitt Romney," he said.
His wife Andrea, also plans to vote for Romney. She reflected on what the last four years have been like for her and her family.
"We're completely worse off. My husband owns his own business, he started his own business, he built his own business. We need to support people who know how to run businesses."
Bryan Anderson owns a styrofoam recycling company that's been impacted by the bad economy. However, other businesses have not been as fortunate as his.
"It's hanging in there. But, as we're going around looking for new business, especially at the industrial parks, we're noticing a lot of businesses are not there anymore."
Andrea Anderson thinks the answer to the struggling economy is simple.
"We need to make a change. Obama's change didn't do it. Romney, he's our only hope."
