Which lens for a political rally
1

I'm going to a political rally in Philadelphia tomorrow night in support of one of the Presidential candidates and I've been given permission to bring a camera to take pictures. I can only take one lens and to be truthful I have no idea how crowded it will be or how close I'll be getting to some of the big heavyweights in the political world. I'm debating taking one of my f/2.8 zooms, either the 12-40/2.8 or 40-150/2.8 or one of my f/1.2 primes. either the 17, 25, or 45. I do have the 12-100/4.0 and I don't think I'll be stopped from taking a small flash like the Olympus FL-700WR, Appreciate any advice. I will be somewhat mobility limited as I'll be using my Rollator (walker with wheels) to get around.
