Minimal script: I’m calling from [___] to ask Rep./Sen.

walkout

Not counting costs of advance personnel, Secret Service or support on the ground…

±$245,000

There is no question that this was a planned walk-out.

“The pool of journalists accompanying the vice president was not allowed into the stadium and was asked to stay in their vans. They were told by a staffer that “there may be an early departure from the game,” but were not given any further details.”
