Huge Crowd of Ron Paul Supporters at the California Republican Party Convention!Submitted by Citizen Joe on Sun, 09/18/2011 - 21:13
Just got back from the convention and I had a blast. Met a lot of nice people... And several people who are regular visitors to the Daily Paul. It was like one big family. Smiles were contagious.
Got there early to greet Dr. Paul along with a couple hundred people who lined up along both sides of the street in front of the hotel.
We made our presence known throughout the convention and the support for the other candidates was almost non-existent. I looked into Perry's supporters room at 10:30am and they had about 10 people. I'm sure his other 10 supporters will show up later in the day...lol I saw no Romney supporters or Bachmann supporters as far as I could tell but the convention was an all day event.
At this point we crowded into the Republican Liberty Caucus event and Dr. Paul addressed the auditorium which was packed and standing room only. I'd say they were about 400-500 Ron Pauliacs.
I finally cast my vote in my first straw poll and it felt great! All thanks to my meet-up group and former Congressional candidate Robert Vaughn who helped me register for the vote.
The Revolution is alive and well in Los Angeles!
Note: Robert worked tirelessly for weeks on this project, showing great care and patience to ensure that all of us who would be casting our votes today were certain to be accommodated by the GOP. ~ with huge appreciation to Robert Vaughn and Steven Vincent for their efforts in making this event a huge success. ~ west coast mod
