CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla. -- The New York contingent to the Republican National Delegation is a little short on the funny hats and crazy costumes that make such events so colorful, but 13-year-old Joey Ballan is doing his part to stand out in the crowd.
Joey arrived at the New York delegation breakfast this morning with his father, John Ballan, a GOP activist from Scarsdale.
And not only did young Joey arrive in a Yankees hat, he came with a sign that said "I'll need a job in 10 years -- vote for Romney and Ryan."
Asked if the sign was his son's idea, the elder Ballan said: "It was a joint production."
