2020 Democrat Cancels Campaign Stop, Where Only 2 People Showed: ‘a Very Empty Room’

Democratic presidential hopeful Deval Patrick canceled a campaign event at Morehouse College after only two people showed up.

Patrick announced his candidacy on November 14 and was scheduled to speak at the historically black college. At the same time, ten other Democratic candidates were preparing to take the debate stage for the fifth primary debate.

ABC News reporter Cheyenne Haslett tweeted a photo of an empty room, saying that the event was canceled after the student group that organized the event told the campaign that only two students showed up. 

“This was the [Deval Patrick] event at [Morehouse] College right around the time we were told he was 2 minutes away. It was a very empty room. A few minutes later, after the students notified the campaign that there were only a few students there, he cancelled.”

ABC News reports that the organization that scheduled the event said it was only given 24 hours notice to plan, and said that Patrick canceled because he was running late.

Another one of Patrick’s events encountered a similar lack of interest. A New York Times reporter tweeted early Monday morning a picture of a large room, virtually empty, with the caption, “The, er, crowd for [Deval Patrick] tonight.”

Patrick, who announced his candidacy last week, did not qualify for the November 20 debate and has admitted that he has a long way to go to gain traction in his campaign, saying, “this won’t be easy.”
