Huckleberries: A Young Ron Paul Fan

You know your 3-year-old daughter is as cute as you think she is when she’s photographed by two members of different media at the recent Ron Paul confab. Nicole Hensley of KXLY snapped Lajla Handeen near glad-handing Ron Paul. Jesse Tinsley of The Spokesman-Review photographed her peeking through a curtain. She was in Spokane with her father, Bjorn Handeen, Precinct 52 committeeman for the Kootenai County GOP Committee. Bjorn tells of Lajla’s close encounter with Paul: “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 4, but I have the feeling that she’ll remember that exchange for a long time.” Bjorn packs Lajla to political events. She behaves well, he told Huckleberries: “If she can sit through a (Kootenai County Republican Central Committee) meeting, a Ron Paul speech is easy”/DFO, HucksOnline. More here. (Anthony Terrell of NBC News shot a third photo of Lajla Handeen at the Ron Paul Rally)

Question: Do/did you take your children to political events?

All Eyes On Lajla

Here's more proof that Bjorn Handeen's 3YO daughter, Lajla, was the most photogenic individual at the Ron Paul rally in Spokane Friday — this side of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul. Monday, HucksOnline provided you with photos of Lajla by KXLY web producer Nicole Hensley here and by SR photog Jesse Tinsley here. Now, a Berry Picker offers this third photo of Lajla and Bjourn at the rally.

Question: Were you a cute 3-year-old?

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.
