Ron Paul may have quit the campaign and decided not to run for president, but his supporters will not be deterred. They're planning to hold a convention of their very own in Tampa, Florida days before the RNC.
Ron Paul supporters are organizing Paul Festival, to be held at the Florida State Fairgrounds on Aug. 24-26, the Tampa Bay Times reported. The Republican National Convention is scheduled to begin the next day, Aug. 27, eight miles across town at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
Ron Paul currently has no plans to attend, spokesman Gary Howard wrote in an e-mail to ABC News. The festival organizers are not affiliated with Paul’s campaign. [...]
Tickets are not yet on sale, but the website advertises several “Ronvoys” to transport attendees from as far away as Spokane, Wash., Phoenix, San Francisco, and Dearborn, Mich.
I'd like to see a poll of those who attend asking whether or not they believe Ron Paul exiting the campaign is a conspiracy perpetrated by the media.
He's still in it, I tell you!
