5,000 turned out March 8, 2000, at a rally for Alan Keyes staged by the Stone family at the McKay Events Center in Orem, UT. The event took place two days before Utah’s presidential primary, in which Alan gained his best showing of the campaign, 21.3 percent, following a state effort coordinated by the Stones.
