A gaggle of reporters and photographers assembled in front of the Jones Regional Educational Center in Monticello, Iowa, where where she was set to speak.

And that's when the magic happened.
Watch Seitz-Wald held his position as the rest of the press corps scurried, literally running, to get to the back of the building.
Roberts was left exclaiming "wow" several times:
