"Spin Room" frenzy

Sean Hannity interviews Mitt Romney in the Spin Room.

MYRTLE BEACH – After catching the last bit of filming on the debate  floor and watching the moderators sign autographs, I wove back to the lusciously fluorescent Spin Room (busting in on a private Romney meeting on the way. Oops.).

The room was packed with an amoeba of photographers swallowing roaming candidates, picketers and local pen-and-paper reports. With a cornucopia of punditry before me, I didn’t quite know where to turn. So I filmed and snapped and listened to South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley bust out pro-Romney one-liners.

In a jist, Perry folks were pleased, Paul supporters were not and Newt’s entourage eclipsed half the room. Sean Hannity chatted with the crowd and posed with the Gingrich clan before the cameras started rolling. Everybody else was just happy to see their home town and state on the front page.

A full photo ambush coming your way soon.
