(CNN) - Ron Paul, the Republican presidential candidate who has said he does not plan on backing John McCain, is planning on holding a day-long rally at the University of Minnesota during the same week the Republican Party is set to hold its convention in Minneapolis.
The news was first reported by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. A spokesman for the university confirmed to CNN that Paul has “tentatively” booked the venue.
Paul and his legion of supporters disagree with McCain's support of the Iraq war.
Go Ron Paul... take some of those votes away from McCain. I definitely don't want either of you in the white house.. but I welcome the Republican division.
Now THAT is going to be something to SEE...i think he'll have a LARGE turnout.....WOW
Go for it Ron. I would vote for you over McBush any day.
The McBush that would keep us in Iraq for a "hundred years" and totally distroy our nation, our economy. Putting Rommy Boy with McBush is only worse. I switched parties at cacus time because of the TOTAL FAILURE of the Bush Admin on every level. They are nothing more than corrupt, murdering liars and idiots.
Paul dissagrees with McCain's entire foreign policy...much more than just the Iraq war.
Oh yeh, and he dissagress with McCains's monatary and domestic policies, civil liberties, freedom of speech, right to bear arms, the role of government, a and just a few other things too.
Other than leaving out those minor details, you summed up why Paul supporter's are so fervent for their candidate pretty well.
This is what will offset any Democrat crossing the line to vote Republican....all the anti-war Paul supporters rushing over to vote Democrat and end the war
I always somewhat liked Ron Paul. Now I know why.
Obama Richardson 2008
Paul - the only candidate with a deep-seated love and respect for the Constitution.
...finally, a republican with integrity!!!
I say go for it Paul! Give old Grampy McCain and the rest of the Redumbicans some heartburn!!
Ron Paul is still running but is not getting any press why is this
and what will mean at the Republicans convention
First McCain tells the Republican primary voters what they want to hear. Now he's telling the rest of the nation, all the while bashing his opponent. Barack Obama started with a dream, but now he's taxing oil companies, letting the subprime crooks get off scott free, all the while bashing his opponent.
At least there's one alternative that's left the sugar coating at the bakery, the attacks in the schoolyard, and the pandering to the used car salesmen. At least there's one alternative at the republican convention, and for my vote, there's one alternative for president – vote for Dr. Ron Paul.
wow !! never heard of a republican against the war.
way to go Paul.
What a guy! He should be the Republican candidate so Obama will have some stiff compettion! Guess the machine wins again!
Go Ron Paul.I have always voted Dem. but hes the only man telling the truth.
As an Obama supporter ... I truly respect many of Mr. Paul's positions on several major issues and believe he was poorly treated during the primary debates. Good luck to you sir!
You go Ron.. If we can get enough voters to pull from all sides Hillary can win a write-in campaign. I will write Hillary Clinton on my ballot in November...
The main ones that swear they will vote for McSame will be the same ones in here next year blogging and complaining about high GAS, losing their HOMES and their JOBS....
THIS IS ABOUT THE PARTY AND NOTHING ELSE....
VOTE- Democratic or VOTE poverty--
STICK TOGETHER- OR WE WILL BE THE NEW 3RD WORLD
Ron Paul, our last true representative in congress.
Do not let the GOP use US!!
Go Mr. Paul! I would NOT vote for McAdulterer either.
Is Ron Paul in debt? Maybe he and Hillary should talk about how to run a campaign for a long time with out spending $20million you don’t have.
FINALLY a little bit of press, still haven't heard cnn talk about his book getting to #1 on NY Times bestseller list, but its something
The rEVOLution continues!
the REVOLUTION is alive and well!
