Next Iowa Campaign Trip Plans

Plans are underway for Congressman Paul's next visit(s) to Iowa during the summer after the preliminary rounds of the GOP debates. A list of volunteers is being assembled for the eastern Iowa leg of the visit in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Clinton, and Butlington/Fort Madison - or other suggestions. Volunteers are needed for all sorts of functions for Ron Paul and wife Carol - including such simple help as short rides to local events for other supporter friends. Get on our "snail" mail roster with a short note to the address below for free bumper stickers/decals - as they become available. Your information will not be shared to anyone outside this eastern Iowa office - we just need your help - even if it's only a sticker on your car.

Thanks alot in advance !

Iowa Campaign Trip

April 17, 2007

Dear friend,

Our campaign trips to New Hampshire and Arizona were very successful as I reported to you earlier. I'm now pleased to report that our recent trip to Iowa was equally successful.

On Wednesday, April 11th, I met with several conservative leaders for breakfast in Cedar Rapids. Afterwards, I was interviewed by members of the editorial board of the Cedar Rapids Gazette. Following that interview, I appeared on the CBS television affiliate for a live broadcast.

The College Republicans at the University of Iowa sponsored a speaking engagement for me that afternoon. The room was completely full and folks were standing in the hall. That evening, it was standing-room only again for a fundraising reception in Ankeny. One couple drove 190 miles in snow to attend the reception! Everyone's enthusiasm filled the room that night.

On Thursday morning, popular Des Moines radio host Jan Michelson of WHO interviewed me for 90 minutes in studio. Our conversation was lively as were the callers. It was then off to the Des Moines Register for a meeting with members of the editorial board. Later, I met with a large group of supporters at a restaurant in Ames.

Iowa State University had me speak Thursday night as part of its lectures program. Over 200 people attended. Among them was a couple and their children who drove seven hours from Minnesota to attend! The Iowa State College Republicans hosted a reception for us after the lecture.

Enthusiastic support for our campaign was found in New Hampshire and then Arizona and now Iowa. I appreciate the hospitality and support from people in those states, as well as the support and encouragement from folks across the country. I'll be speaking at the state convention of the California Republican Assembly this Saturday in Ontario, California and am looking forward to meeting fellow conservatives there.

Hawkeyes Welcome Ron Paul !

The University of Iowa College Republicans along with key Johnson County, IA Republican Party caucus members and southeastern Iowa's leading Libertarians all welcomed GOP candidate Dr. Ron Paul to the University of Iowa campus on Wednesday, April 11. KGAN-TV (CBS) Channel 2 in Cedar Rapids had a live interview with Congressman Ron Paul before his "Restoring the Constitution" talk and questions from the audience.

In addition, a Meet and Greet Fundraiser is planned for this evening starting at 7:30 pm at the Fairfield Inn in Ankeny just off I-35 north of Des Moines.

Dr. Paul will be on 1040 AM WHO Des Moines News/Talk Radio from 10:00 am to 11:30 am on Thursday April 12, and the Texas Congressman will also talk in the South Ballroom, Memorial Union on the Iowa State University campus in Ames starting at 7:00pm on Thursday night.

Ron Paul comes off as an articulate, extremely intelligent, energetic, and compassionate speaker . . . kinda how one would envision a Presidential candidate SHOULD be.

He is a "must see" if you can at all make it to the Iowa State campus on Thursday night !


Ron Paul at U of Iowa on April 11

The University of Iowa College Republicans and the Tippie College of Business welcome GOP candidate Dr. Ron Paul on Wednesday, April 11 at 2:00 pm at the Pappajohn Business Administration Building across Jefferson Street from the Pentacrest on the beautiful University of Iowa campus. Underground parking at 80 cents/hr is available under the Pappajohn Business Administration Building - as well as Iowa City street metered parking.

Let's extend some good ole fashion Midwest hospitality to the nine-term GOP Congressman from our sister state of Texas on Wednesday August 11 at the Henry B. Tippie College of Busineess.

Register to VOTE REPUBLICAN at the adjacent voter registration drive at noon on the Pentacrest lawn.
