Ron Paul Seeking First GOP Win In Minnesota

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. (AP) – Ron Paul has invested days of campaigning and money for television ads ahead of caucuses in Minnesota, where he’s hoping he can eke out the first win of his Republican presidential campaign.

The Texas congressman spent the most time in Minnesota of any competitors ahead of Tuesday’s voting and planned to see it through with a caucus-night party outside Minneapolis.

It reflects Paul’s strategy of concentrating on caucus states where he can amass national convention delegates even if he doesn’t win.

In his Minnesota stops, Paul has hit on anti-war themes and cast himself as the candidate most committed to cutting government budgets.

Four years ago, Paul won nearly 16 percent of the caucus vote to finish fourth in Minnesota, where Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won.

    So, We the People are to believe that Ron Paul, who has earned more private twenty dollar bill contributions than all the other candidates combined, who has as much if not more money in his coffers than all the others and has more backing from our military than all the others combined. A man who is running against others in his party who would have had to end their campaigns if not for multi-million dollar infusions from private billionares…So, the controlled main stream media has been asking US to believe what?..The Other Two are the front runners….. Goes to show US who is lying to who , dont it.
    Peace, truth, justice, freedom and prosperity, in-spite of those who would have it otherwise.
