Ron Paul draws 5,000 supporters to second campaign event in California this week (with pictures)

On Thursday, 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.

Katherine Jarvis was at the event and covered Ron Paul’s speech via Twitter.  Ron Paul first stated he was an avid bicycler and was pleased to see so many bicycles around the campus.  After the crowd laughed, Paul discussed his plan to repeal the Patriot Act and bring back privacy to the people.  Paul stated there should never be a time when free people sacrifice liberty for safety (referencing the TSA).  Ron Paul finished his speech discussing his Plan to Restore America.

2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul drew another sizable crowd of supporters and undecided voters at the second of three campaign events he is holding in California this week, this time drawing 5,000-plus people to a town hall meeting held at the University of California – Davis.

Ron Paul’s town hall meeting at the University of California – Davis, took place tonight at 7:00 p.m. PST on the school’s West Memorial Union Quadrangle, Davis, CA 95616.  The 12-term Congressman from Texas discussed his platform of constitutionally-limited government, the restoration of our economic and civil liberties, and elements of his path-breaking ‘Plan to Restore America.’

On Thursday, Michele Bachmann endorsed Romney.  Gingrich is expected to endorse Mitt Romney in a few weeks despite his previous reputation as a “Tea Party candidate” and Romney being considered the “establishment candidate“.  However, many Republican voters claim to be less than enthusiastic about supporting Mitt Romney and are looking for an alternative.  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.  The Huffington Post reported Thursday that Ron Paul will be on the ballot at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, meaning that Paul has won at least five states.

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.

Only Mitt Romney and Ron Paul remain in the Republican race for the presidential nomination.
