The truth hurts.
Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy was briefly interrupted during a campaign rally in New Hampshire when he was hit by a falling sign bearing his slogan “2024.”
Ramaswamy, 38, was speaking at a Lancaster county fair on Sunday as the big “truth” banner began to drop hopefully on the White House.
The crowd seemed to warn the businessman and “Woke, Inc” writer of the slowly falling poster, and Ramaswamy steeled himself before it fell onto his back.
Ramaswamy took the incident lightly and continued his remarks after the sign was put back up. according to WMUR.
The GOP nominee spent Labor Day weekend storming New Hampshire, making stops in the first-to-be-nominated state with the benefit of being one of the few presidential candidates to see a surge in poll numbers after the debate .
Among participants in the first Republican presidential debate, Ramaswamy is the only candidate who has made significant progress since June. according to a CNN poll published on Tuesday.
According to the poll, his support has risen from just 1% to 6%, with 30% of GOP voters calling him the best-performing candidate on the stage in Milwaukee and beating Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at the first debate 2 percent outperformed points.
