(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.
Run Paul Run!!!!!
Yes!...with him and Bob Barr on the ballot in November, Obama will win by a LANDSLIDE!!
Where is his picture?????? Put a picture of him so everyone can see. HUM, so the Republicans don't all get along eh????? Interesting...
Ron Paul never McCain !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Go Ron Paul!!! hehe
I've always liked this guy.
Represents integrity and honesty in politics.
I am a republican who would of voted republican if Ron Paul was the presuptive nominee. Now I will vote democratic. McCain's military service was lacking and his private life wasn't to much better and his wife is a drug addict who should of went to jail.
I am voting for Ron Paul. He is the only one who actually listens to the average American and respects our freedom as well as the sovereignity of other nations.
McCain does NOT represent the voice of the Conservatives.... we will NOT vote for someone pandering to the Clintons...... the only good Clinton is an IMPEACHED one. McCain your a traitor!
Ron Paul is king!
Republicans are scared to death. They have no solutions and just causing waves.
The old american ways are dead – a new america is born.
Some of them are potsing as former Hillary supporters.
Don't believe them for a minute.
Hmmm you don't say. I wonder who he is backing. There is only one other. The GOP is more divided than the DEMS, this is why McCain and Lieberman are reaching out those out stretched arms to the ANGRY & DISGRUNTAL to try and make up the difference.
I just hope that stupidity lessons by November for some of our DEMS.
CMON DEMS wake up!!!!
Who gives a fresh pile of dog squeeze what this RINO wants to do. Paul just cross over to the democrats and get it over with already.
So it looks like both parties have people that are not willing to back each other but it looks as though the republicans have more.
Go Ron Paul! Run as an independent.
Go Paul, I democrat completely disagree with McCain's 100 years war.
I think this is one of the few good men who understand what is going.
that this election is more than spinning, lies and the same old games of deception.
I am surprised that CNN and other news media did give attention to this Ron Paul.
-Instead day and night they focus their attention on race card, Hillary and Bill ... Bill and Hill were there in white house for 8 years.
When they move to New york, people thought they were angel.
I guest the truth is out.
Let's make sure the GOP understands, we're not going anywhere! No matter how much they continue to try and push us out!
There are a million or so of us Paulites up for grabs and I suspect most of us will vote for the man who demonstrates the most respect for American freedoms and most closely adheres to the Constitution.
And, of course, we'll vote against the man who most fails those tests. Can either of you, Senators McCain and Obama, afford to throw away a million-plus votes? I doubt it.
Ron Paul was the only Republican candidate i liked .. wonder why they shunned him ...
As a Democrat and avide Obama/Dem Unite supporter – Paul is actually a respectful Republican.
He has a lot more integrity than McCain... McCain just had the name recognition =/
He is still my candidate
Much better candidate than McCain.
Well, Henry Miller pf Cary, NC, I guess I'll be the sole person to join your blog. Hold on, the crickets are chirping too loudly...........there we go, much better. Where was I? Oh yeah, Obama '08.
