Ron Paul attracts 3,000-plus voters to town hall meeting in Houston with pics

On Friday, thousands in Texas gathered to see Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul speak.  The Hofheinz Pavilion at the University of Houston slowly filled as supporters prepared to see Ron Paul.  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 3,000-plus supporters and undecided voters tonight at his University of Houston town hall meeting.

Ron Paul’s University of Houston town hall meeting was held at 7:00 p.m. CT at the university’s Hofheinz Pavilion, located at 3466 Cullen Boulevard in Houston, TX 77204.  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.’

This concludes the second series of large on-campus town hall meetings with Ron Paul, also held at the University of Texas at El Paso, drawing 1,200 and the University of Texas at Austin, with a crowd of 6,000.

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 nomination next Tuesday.  This means the Republican Party will have two choices for the nomination for president, Ron Paul and Mitt Romney.

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.  This was the last large, on-campus scheduled event in Texas this week.
