On Wednesday, thousands in California 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 returning to California for private fundraisers, media interviews, and town hall events. Dr. Paul’s previous campaign events in California included a record-breaking event in which over 8,500 supporters gathered to see the presidential candidate speak.
2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul continued his pattern of attracting thousands of attendees to his town hall meetings, this time drawing 4,000-plus voters to his California State University at Fullerton campus event.
Tonight’s CSUF town hall meeting took place at 7:00 p.m. PST at the school’s Titan Stadium, located on W. Campus Drive, Fullerton, CA 92831. Dr. Paul spoke to the CSUF and general community about the need for constitutionally-limited government, the bonds that tie economic and civil liberties, and elements of his ‘Plan to Restore America,’ an economic blueprint that cuts Washington spending, reduces the national debt, and curtails the rapid growth of the federal government.
The Fullerton event was the first in a days-long series of campaign events to be held in California. Ron Paul will hold another large on-campus town hall meeting tomorrow at the University of California at Davis and on Friday, he will hold another at the University of California at San Diego. Details of Dr. Paul’s ongoing campaign swing in the Golden State, including information on how to RSVP, can be found here.
On Wednesday, Newt Gingrich suspended his campaign to be the Republican presidential nominee, leaving just Mitt Romney and Ron Paul in the race. Gingrich is expected to endorse Mitt Romney in a few weeks despite Romney being considered the “establishment candidate“.
Ron Paul has at least one Tea Party Express rally scheduled for Sunday, May 6. This rally will feature Ron Paul, his son and Senator Rand Paul, Tea Party Express chair Amy Kremer, and Texas Republican candidate for U. S. Senate, Ted Cruz.
Despite Governor Mitt Romney being the perceived “front runner” in the Republican race for their presidential candidate, Congressman Ron Paul maintains he will remain in the race. His strategy has most recently won delegates in Iowa, Alaska, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania.
