ARLINGTON, VA â€“ The United Republicans of California (UROC) have unanimously endorsed Congressman Ron Paul for president of the United States. UROC, formed in 1963 to support Barry Goldwater, represents the traditional conservative wing of the California Republican Party.
"The unanimous endorsement from the United Republicans of California proves what the campaign has been saying all along," said campaign chairman Kent Snyder. "Ron Paul is the only true conservative and real Republican in the race."
In their official statement endorsing Dr. Paul, UROC called him "the leading advocate for freedom in our nation's capital" and recognized that:
Ron Paul's voting record demonstrates that he has voted against:
- raising taxes;
- unbalanced budgets;
- a federal restriction on gun ownership;
- raising congressional pay; or
- increasing the power of the executive branch.
His voting record demonstrates further that he voted against:
- the USA Patriot Act;
- regulating the Internet; and
- the war in Iraq.
Dr. Paul is the only candidate with a record that matches the UROC's conservative platform.
"Whether the issue is life, the Second Amendment, foreign policy, spending or taxes, Ron Paul is the only traditional conservative candidate," continued Snyder. "Traditional conservatives across the country should support Ron Paul for president."
