 5:00 PM  Watching Flashy Bull at the Silver Dollar

The Winnebago was no sooner headed on its way from Bloomfield before it turned around and stopped at the Silver Dollar bar so Thompson could catch a horse race.

But it wasn't just any horse race -- this one featured Flashy Bull, a horse Thompson owns a partial stake in. Although his horse had won four races in a row recently, today it came in fourth.

Of course, Thompson couldn't enter a roomful of people without shaking hands and asking for support. Before he left, he implored them to come to Ames for the straw poll and received an enthusiastic, liquor-fueled response.

Thompson's senior advisor, Steve Grubbs, joked later that they should campaign at bars more often.
