HOT: Ron Paul Gets Major Iowa Endorsement

Cory Adams - the Republican chairman of Story County in Iowa – endorsed the Ron Paul at a campaign event in Ames, Iowa.
CNN explains why this is such a big deal:
That's significant for a few reasons. Ames is the largest city in Story County, home to over 50,000 residents. And it is in this city that a widely-watched showdown between the GOP presidential candidates will play out on August 13. The Ames Straw Poll will test the candidates' popularity and could be a sign of their electability. 
Having the endorsement of such an influential political figure in and around Ames will surely give Paul's campaign something to boast about as it aims for a strong showing in that contest.
Adams explained to CNN the rationale behind his endorsement of Paul.

"I try to go for the candidates that line up mostly with the values, the principles of the [nation's] founders," Adams said. "Out of all the candidates in this cycle, I found Ron Paul to be the one with the longest, most consistent voting record to back up those principles and concepts."

How might Adams' endorsement help Paul with voters?

Adams explained: "Back in 2008 there were a lot of people within the Republican Party that kind of disregarded Congressman Paul. And basically didn't just count him in and/or wouldn't even mention him. So when you can have a county chair who is part of the Republican Party, part of the establishment and support him, it gives him more credibility within the party and brings him back from the fringe."


  1. I give Ron Paul a 50/50 shot at getting the nomination.

  2. I predict that if he wins Iowa the media will be all over it with how Iowa actually isn't that important to the nomination.

  3. I agree - they trash Ron Paul. He has 70% more supporters than they want you to know.. He is very electable - dont listen to bs they try to crap their people down your throat.. Time of that nonsense is coming to an end!
