As You Might Expect, the Crowd Count Differs

From Searchlight, NV:

Crowd estimates from 9,000 – 30,000+ people for today’s Tea Party Express “Showdown in Searchlight” event featuring Governor Palin.

Members of the press corps estimated the crowd size between 9,000 – 14,000 but the security and crowd control firm working the event estimated 30,000+.

Representatives from the security firm indicated they would be happy to confirm their estimates with interested members of the press, and based their estimates on their history of crowd control for other such public events.

FoxNews guy on-scene estimated 10,000+. AP runs with 7,000.

HT: McCain

The cops say 8000 and my guess that is probably more to the truth.
Maybe 200 on the other side.
But you also have consider Sarchlight is 60 miles from Vegas and for people to travel that far for the rally shows the true hatred of Reid by the people of Nevada and the country, for that matter.
