Just a month and a half ago GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul declared that he would end campaigning in states to keep from going into debt and focus on what his primary strategy had been all along and that was obtaining delegates. He also said that he believed he did not have the delegates needed to win the party’s nomination. However, his supporters disagreed with him and vowed to fight on, because they believed the Liberty movement was bigger than Ron Paul. He was just the messenger.
The Paul campaign signed a contract on Thursday that will secure them the 11,000 seat Sun Dome at the University of South Florida for Sunday, August 26. On that day the Liberty movement will have a huge rally just prior to the kick-off of the three day Republican National Convention in Tampa.
“The Republican National Convention is just around the corner, and the establishment is about to find out what you and I have known all along this election season – the future is ours!” Paul informed his readers via email on Friday. “So on Aug. 26, the day before the convention convenes, I hope you’ll join me at a special rally to celebrate how far our message and movement have come this year.”
Capitol Column reports,
During a recent appearance on CNN, Mr. Paul refused to endorse Mr. Romney, as he wants to have a strong presence at the campaign for his thousands of supporters who are expected to show up in strong numbers. Mr. Romney and Mr. Paul have different views of how the Republican party can not only win the general election, but also restore the economic vibrancy of the U.S. economy and reduce the national unemployment rate.
The Texas congressman has amassed a significant number of state delegates. The Republican party’s uniquely binding delegate rules has allowed Mr. Paul to build support, and the strong number of delegates could serve as providing Mr. Paul with credibility among Mr. Romney and the other top Republicans Tampa for the convention.
The Republican National Committee has approved of the pre-convention rally that will feature Mr. Paul, according to his campaign website, which further gives the Texas Republican and his supporters credibility for having their views heard on balancing the federal budget, scaling back government involvement in domestic affairs and drastically reducing the nation’s military presence in foreign countries.
Many Paul supporters are also setting up their own three day Ron Paul festival and the Texas congressman is expected to make an appearance there.
The event is not ticketed so there will be a massive amount of people coming from all over the country to attend, but don’t expect the mainstream media to cover it. In fact, don’t expect your cable media to cover it either.
