Atlanta ‘Rick Bus’ stop draws local, national activists

Members of Soulforce at the 'Rick Bus' protest

Around 30 supporters of GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum gathered outside of the Georgia Capitol today as part of the Susan B. Anthony List's “Rick Bus” tour. Noticeably absent was Maggie Gallagher, former chair of the National Organization for Marriage.

Gallagher had been slated to speak at the event as late as today, according to the group's website. An organizer for today's rally said Gallagher was in Minnesota and was unable to make it to Georgia in time for the rally.

Several speakers addressed the handful of attendees who gathered to support Santorum ahead of the state's Super Tuesday primary. A few Georgia politicians and a small group of local supporters were on-hand for today's rally.
