Little Lajla Meets, Delights Ron Paul

At KXLY, Web Producer Nicole Hensley took this great shot of Bjorn Handeen and his daughter. Handeen, the Kootenai County Republican precinct committeeman from Precinct 52, and daughter Lajla were front & center at the Ron Paul rally in Spokane Friday night. Bjorn emails of daughter Lajla, who isn't 4 year: "She was an angel the whole time. I've been able to bring her to all kinds of political events and meetings, as a matter of fact, and I suppose if she can sit through a KCRCC meeting, a Ron Paul speech is easy! When Ron Paul shook her hand, he asked if she knew his name. She smiled, nodded, and said "Ron Paul!". He got a big kick out of that. She was beaming that whole weekend. She's not even four, but I have  feeling that she'll remember that exchange for a long time." You can read Nicole's report & see her KXLY photo gallery here.

Question: Have you taken your children to a political rally?
