Ron Paul attracts 1,200-plus voters to El Paso, Texas town hall meeting

On Wednesday, more than 1,200 voters in Texas gathered to see Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul speak.  The 12-term congressman from Texas had announced a few days prior that his campaign team would be focusing in Texas, his home state, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  Dr. Paul’s campaign events consistently pack the houseflood the streets, and fill stadiums.

2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul attracted an impressive 1,200-plus supporters and undecided voters tonight at his University of Texas at El Paso town hall meeting.

Ron Paul’s UTEP town hall meeting was held at 7:00 p.m. MT at the university’s Magoffin Auditorium, located on Hawthorne Street in El Paso, TX 79968.  At the event, Dr. Paul discussed his platform of constitutionally-limited government, the restoration of economic and civil liberties, and provisions of his path-breaking ‘Plan to Restore America.’

Tomorrow Ron Paul will hold another large on-campus town hall meeting at the University of Texas at Austin and on Friday, he holds another at the University of Houston.  Details of Dr. Paul’s ongoing campaign swing in the Lone Star State, including information on how to RSVP, can be found here.

Tuesday’s primaries in five states caused sources close to the Gingrich campaign to inform the media that Gingrich will be dropping out of the Republican race for the nominationnext Tuesday.  This means the Republican Party will have two choices for the nomination for president, Ron Paul and Mitt Romney.  In Virginia, the primary was in March and only Ron Paul and Mitt Romney were on the ballot.  Congressman Paulgathered over 40% of the vote.  Numerous networks have now reported that it appears Congressman Ron Paul may be winning the Republican nomination for president.  It seems more and more likely that there will be a brokered convention.

The Congressman, one of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People“, has declared he is not dropping out and is in it to win it.  The crowds drawn to his events seem to emphasize this.
