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.
