While Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich made their final push in Florida and Rick Santorum focused on connecting with the Tea Party in Nevada, Ron Paul has been doing things his way: casually campaigning in Colorado, preparing for his 55th wedding anniversary tomorrow, and calling on the Gingrich campaign to apologize to one of his fans.
Pau, who spent two days this the week in Maine, began the day with a 10 a.m. town hall meeting in Fort Collins, another town hall in Denver, and a 2 p.m. whistle stop in Colorado Springs. He then flew to Nevada and had a “Nevada Campaign Call to Arms” in Henderson, a suburb of Las Vegas.
His campaign also took the time to demand an apology from the Gingrich campaign for its staff’s treatment of a Paul supporter at an event in Florida. “They say the culture of an organization is a reflection of its top executive and today’s deplorable behavior against Ron Paul supporter Eddie Dillard in Florida reflects very poorly on Congressman Gingrich,” the campaign wrote. Dillard’s foot was stepped on rather aggressively.
Tomorrow is Paul’s 55th wedding anniversary with his wife Carol. They’ll spend it campaigning until 3 p.m., after which there are no events on the schedule. For a candidate who’s in it until the convention whether he wins or loses, there’s no rush.
