Ron Paul schedules three Colorado appearances Tuesday, thousands expected

Categories: Politics

Ron Paul.
The Florida primary takes place tomorrow, with Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich expected to spend their day slugging it out for Republican votes in the Sunshine State. But not Representative Ron Paul, who's instead scheduled a full day of campaigning in Colorado, a week before the February 7 caucuses here.

Included: a noon event in Denver that one supporter expects to attract at least a thousand Paul backers.

Paul's day will begin at 10 a.m. at the main ballroom of the Lory Student Center on the Colorado State University campus. Then, at noon, he'll turn up at the Grand Ballroom of the Renaissance Denver Hotel, 3801 Quebec Street. And two hours later, he'll make a whistle-stop visit to the City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport, 1575 Aviation Way in the Springs. Click here for more details.

The Paul operation is a grassroots effort, which means that organization isn't necessarily its strong suit. Matt Holdridge is officially listed as the Colorado state director for the campaign; we've requested an interview and will update this post when and if he responds. However, this information apparently hasn't filtered down to numerous supporters I've contacted in recent weeks. The most recent of them told me all commentary was being handled by national press secretary Gary Howard, who hasn't responded to an interview request placed last week.

But these communication snafus are counterbalanced by Paul's backers, who seem much more enthusiastic about his candidacy than do those lined up behind Romney, Gingrich and Rick Santorum, the fourth major hopeful still in the race. Comments from Paul backers have been popping up on posts of all types across our site, including those pertaining to marijuana. Why? One Paul fan refers to him as "the only candidate fighting for our state's right to be MMJ friendly."

His note to us concludes, "Spread the word and I'll see you with over 1,000 other freedom fighters at the Denver stop!"

No telling if this prediction about turnout will come true. But bet against him at your own risk.

Santorum constantly voted against the 2nd Amendment but voted repeatedly to give Penn State pedophile Jerry Sandusky the congressional Angels in Adoption award. Newt loves illegals (amnesty) more than Americans (Newt wants to bring back child labor for US kids). Mitt thinks corporations are people (killing his general election chances). Ron Paul is the only candidate with a plan to end the TSA and end the endless wars for Israel, it all started a decade ago after a false flag attack.9/11, US and Israel:http://www.amazon.com/America-...

Ron Paul stands for the true conservative ideal in my opinion, atleast a tolerable sort. Ignore comments about marijuana and take a look a Ron Paul's track record and opinions on these issues. I believe Paul is just interested on cutting the amount of money (which is A LOT) the spends on the war on drugs.

I am happy that you are promoting the Ron Paul stops.  Thumbs up for that.  However, let's not judge the campaign based on what your perceptions of how well they communicate with you.  I know for a fact that this stop was not planned until 6 days ago- and the details were still being put together TODAY.  Sorry we didn't clear that with the Westword first...  I have been emailed 3 times about the three stops in Colorado, once they were finalized.  

"The Paul operation is a grassroots effort, which means that organization isn't necessarily its strong suit." 

LOL!!! that is funny.  Grass roots IS why it is strong...

After Florida it's time to buck the MSM and the establishment. Give it to them Colorado, stand up for Paul and this country.

The greatest politician our country will probably ever see. Like Carlton said though, he is raising the next generation so who knows, maybe one day it will be a Government of Ron Paul'.s

Everyone should read The Revolution: A Manifesto, before rushing to judgement.

Regardless of the final results of Ron Paul's candidacy his message will spread farther and outlast that of any politician of this era. Personal liberty, sound monetary policy, limited government, responsible foreign policy. These principles are the foundation of this country, and every United States citizen should understand and support them.
