It’s 7:45 p.m. Our man Delaney has 15 more minutes to make his pitch to voters. What had begun this afternoon, has become either a real movement or a failed journalistic prank.

I called Delaney. He had already returned to his campaign headquarters/apartment in Cap. Hill.

There’s 15 more minutes, I tell him. “There weren’t that many people there,” Delaney explains. ” It was raining. I gave out 75 fliers or maybe a little more than that. [His opponent] Glick says there are 600 people voting for him.”

Delaney laughs.

Any other thoughts. “Let’s count ’em,” Delaney says.
