Ron Paul Leads GOP Candidates in Iowa Campaign Donations; Evidence of a large and growing base of support
LAKE JACKSON, Texas – According to a recent report from the Des Moines Register, 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul leads among GOP contenders in donations from the state of Iowa so far this year. Paul bests presumed frontrunner Mitt Romney, and places comfortably ahead of the rest of the Republican field.

“This is more clear evidence of Dr. Paul’s large and growing base of support in the great state of Iowa,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton. “Iowans who are sick and tired of the status quo message coming from the establishment candidates in this race are attracted to our campaign’s message of balanced budgets, limited constitutional government, and individual liberty, and we are working to capitalize on that momentum.”

Paul Campaign Applauds NV Caucus Move to Feb. 4; NH Primacy Assured, NV Importance Affirmed
LAKE JACKSON, Texas – The Ron Paul Campaign today applauded the Nevada Central Committee’s decision to reschedule the Nevada presidential caucus for February 4. The move protects New Hampshire’s traditional “first in the nation” status while ensuring that Nevada voters receive proper attention from all candidates for the GOP nomination.
“We are extremely pleased with this decision, and we thank Nevada GOP Chair Amy Tarkanian and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus for their tireless work,” said Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.
“The Paul campaign believes firmly in the primacy of the New Hampshire primary – and in the importance of the Nevada caucus as well. We’re very proud that our campaign and our supporters on the Nevada Central Committee took a leadership role in resolving this issue.
“Voters in the Granite State and the Silver State will now have the opportunity to meet and deeply examine the candidates who are asking for their votes,” Benton continued. “And that’s the way it should be.”
Crowds of More Than 1,200 People Greet Ron Paul in IowaTown hall meetings plus youth event mean direct voter contact exceeds 1,600 on first of two-day tour
ANKENY, Iowa – The first day of 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul’s two-day visit to Iowa yielded huge turnouts at public events featuring some of the Hawkeye State’s most involved voters and supporters.

More than 175 people attended Dr. Paul’s Davenport town hall meeting, and more than 220 people attended his town hall meeting in Burlington, his first visit there. 

Most notably, more than 1,200 members of the University of Iowa and general community greeted the Texas Congressman in the Main Lounge of the Memorial Union, located on the university’s Iowa City campus.  This occurred even as homecoming weekend provided the public with an array of large events from which to distract from Paul’s visit.

“The energy in the room tonight was unreal as more than 1,200 students and supporters filled the hall to hear Ron Paul's message of peace, prosperity, and individual liberty.  Students in Iowa and nationwide know that Dr. Paul is the only candidate running for office who will fix our economy, get our financial house in order, and restore American prosperity,” said Edward King, National Youth Coordinator for the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign.

The University of Iowa event was organized by Youth for Ron Paul (YFP), an initiative of the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign.  Since “Youth for Ron Paul” launched last month, students nationwide have organized 166 chapters and recruited more than 9,800 people. 

Prior to the Davenport and Burlington town hall meetings and before his successful University of Iowa YFP visit, Dr. Paul was interviewed live in-studio with WHO Radio’s Jan Mickelson in Des Moines, and in Newton he toured the TPI Composites plant and met with the American Wind Energy Association.

“Something incredible is brewing in Iowa, with Ron Paul treated to warm receptions in just about every venue he visits.  The Iowa team is inspired, thankful and humbled by Iowans’ appreciation for the seriousness Dr. Paul gives to Iowa and its first-in-nation status,” said Drew Ivers, the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign’s Iowa Chairman.
