Ron Paul Speaking in Minnesota Could Signal a Kurt Bills GOP Endorsement for U.S. Senate
Ron Paul, the charismatic Texas Congressman, will speak at the Minnesota Republican Convention in St. Cloud on May 18.
Ron Paul will speak at the Minnesota Republican Convention in St. Cloud on May 18 according to a Minnesota Public Radio report.
Bills has been a vocal Ron Paul supporter and introduced the Republican presidential candidate during a previous visit to Minnesota ahead of the March caucuses. Ron Paul has since come out and endorsed Bills in his quest to become the GOP-endorsed candidate to run against DFL incumbent Sen. Amy Klobuchar this fall.
Republican conventions across the state have seen a significant impact from Ron Paul delegates and an appearance at the state convention could significantly bolster support for Bills as he fends off attacks from Hegseth and Severson for his association with Paul.
According to MPR, Republican Party of Minnesota Chairman Pat Shortridge said having Paul speak at the convention"will highlight our common Republican purpose of restoring limited government and individual liberty by electing Republican candidates who believe in those core party principles."
