January 10, 2012- Texas Congressman and Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ron Paul is counting on the people of New Hampshire to help propel his campaign into the next crucial round of primaries in the south. Recent polls have Paul running only behind Mitt Romney in Tuesday’s primary. Just last week Paul placed a strong third in the caucuses held in Iowa.
Paul has been able to attract a loyal, passionate group of supporters that have taken to his libertarian campaign. Among those supporters are many of his fellow Republicans and independents, who are able to vote in the New Hampshire primary.
On Wednesday, Dr. Paul will head to South Carolina where the next primary is scheduled. Paul has had a number of television spots airing in South Carolina over the last week to ten days promoting the government cuts he wants to make as president.
On Tuesday, Paul will visit different polling locations throughout New Hampshire. Paul has stayed away from directly criticizing frontrunner Romney but has said Romney is included in the “political establishment” he plans to tackle when elected as our next president.
On Monday, Paul was in Stratham and Hollis, New Hampshire where he held town hall meetings with the local residents of both communities. He met with diners at a Manchester eating establishment as well, and was mobbed by the media and well-wishers.
