Commentator, analyst to consult on legal issues
LAKE JACKSON, Texas – The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign announced today that constitutional and international law expert Bruce Fein will join the campaign as senior advisor on legal matters.

“Bruce Fein’s participation adds to our campaign’s already intellectual heft, enabling us to more broadly engage the conversation about constitutionality, civil liberties and the dangers to national security of an increasingly interventionist foreign policy,” said Ron Paul 2012 Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.

Mr. Fein served as associate deputy attorney and general counsel to the Federal Communications Commission under President Ronald Reagan.  He served as Research Director for Republicans on the Joint Congressional Committee on Covert Arms Sales to Iran, and on the American Bar Associations Committee on Presidential Signing Statements.  He has been a Visiting Fellow for Constitutional Studies at the Heritage Foundation and an adjunct scholar at American Enterprise Institute.  He has advised numerous countries on constitutional reform, including South Africa, Hungary and Russia.

Mr. Fein graduated from Harvard Law School with honors in 1972.  He has worked in and out of government in Washington, D.C. for 39 years, and penned a weekly column for The Washington Times for more than two decades.  He is a frequent witness before Congress.

Mr. Fein is the founding member of Bruce Fein & Associates, Inc., and is a principal of a public advocacy organization, The Lichfield Group.

He is the author of Constitutional Peril:  The Life and Death Struggle for our Constitution and Democracy, andAmerican Empire Before The Fall.

About his appointment, Mr. Fein stated:  “I am honored to advance the Republican presidential aspirations of Ron Paul.  He is the only candidate in the field who understands and practices the constitutional principles and philosophy of the Founding Fathers that made this nation a government of the people, by the people, for the people.  He is the only candidate who knows that limited government and war are antonyms, not synonyms.  He is the only candidate who repudiates aimless, endless wars at extravagant expense.  And Dr. Paul is the only candidate that recognizes that the glory of a Republic is liberty, not domination.”

Does better than most of GOP field versus President
LAKE JACKSON, Texas – A new Gallup poll of registered voters shows 2012 presidential candidate Ron Paul locked in a tight race with President Obama. Ron Paul is tightly competitive versus President Obama, doing better than a majority of the other Republican contenders. The poll gives Paul 45 percent of the vote versus the incumbent president in a head-to-head matchup.

“This push for true leadership over the status quo is gaining more support,” said Ron Paul 2012 Campaign Manager John Tate. “In poll after poll, Americans are eager for real change and looking for a leader who stands for individual liberty and limited government, and who follows the Constitution.”

Paul is coming off of a strong finish in the Iowa Straw Poll, where he barely missed the top spot by less than one percent. In addition, recent surveys taken in both New Hampshire and Iowa show the Congressman in the top three of Republican contenders.

The Gallup survey, conducted August 17-18, shows Paul only 2 points behind Obama in a general election match up. In a similar head to head survey from last year done by Rasmussen, Paul actually drew a statistical dead heat with the President. And earlier this year in a survey by CNN, he did the best out of the other Republicans put up against Obama in a head-to-head poll.

Dr. Paul to make five stops to speak, meet voters
ANKENY, Iowa – The Iowa component of the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign announced today that Ron Paul will return to Iowa on Saturday, August 27th, two weeks after his historic near-first place showing at the Ames Straw Poll.  

Dr. Paul will greet Republican voters in Madison County, sign copies of his book Liberty Defined, grant an in-studio interview to Iowa Public Radio, speak at the Iowa Corn Growers Annual Meeting and attend the Polk County Republican Summer Picnic.

Dr. Paul’s visit takes place two weeks after his historic showing at the consequential Ames Straw Poll.  Dr. Paul won 4,671 votes at Ames, topping Governor Mitt Romney’s vote total from 2007 and drawing a near statistical tie with winner Michele Bachmann at 27.6 percent of the vote versus 28.5 percent.  Dr. Paul’s finish earned him a strong second place and it was the fourth highest vote total ever received by a candidate at the important test of candidate strength.

“We are so pleased to again welcome Dr. Paul to Iowa, particularly in the aftermath of his respectable showing at the Ames Straw Poll,” said Iowa campaign chairman Drew Ivers.

“This next visit of Dr. Paul’s and future visits will enable the Iowa team to build upon past successes while redoubling our efforts on behalf of our candidate, who is the number one family-friendly champion of the Constitution,” said Mr. Ivers.
