Ron Paul returns to Texas

  • Text size: + -

Rep. Ron Paul is making another swing through his home state. He will hold three town halls on three different University of Texas campuses this week. His stop in Austin is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday.

The town halls are organized by student supporters. The local UT 'Youth for Ron Paul' chapter has 42 members registered on its website, and the student-run Liberty for All Super PAC has been actively trying to get out the vote for Paul both on and off campus.

Paul is also hoping to pick up some campaign contributions while he's in town. He's holding a private fundraiser Thursday.

While most say Mitt Romney has locked up the nomination, Paul says he will stay in the race until the Republican National Convention this summer. It seems his financial backers stand by that decision. His campaign raised $10.4 million in the first quarter of 2012 and raked in $2.6 million in March alone.

Paul is banking on picking up some delegates in Tuesday night's primaries. Of the five states voting, Rhode Island is the only state which awards delegates proportionately, giving Paul the chance to add to his count. The ad below is airing across Rhode Island ahead of the vote.
