Long-shot Democratic Presidential candidate Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) had a campaign event in New Hampshire on Tuesday, but not a single potential voter showed up.
The event dubbed “Coffee Conversations,” was held outside the DoubleTree hotel in Manchester, New Hampshire. It involves Phillips handing out free Dunkin’ coffee from his “Government Repair Truck” while talking to voters in below freezing temperature.
But no one showed up and Phillips ended up pouring coffee for the staffers who were there, according to NBC News.
“Sometimes if you build it, they don’t come,” Phillips said.
The campaign insisted that the event flopped because people were parking in a garage underground and entering through the hotel to avoid the cold.
Biden voters in New Hampshire are mounting a write-in campaign this year after his decision to skip the state’s primary because the Republican-led state refused to give up its first in the nation primary status to South Carolina, according to Reuters.
