Ron Paul Slams Herman Cain’s Media CoverageSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Thu, 11/03/2011 - 18:17
Texas Congressman Ron Paul, an official candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, made an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” with Joe Scarborough on Thursday. Paul discussed his supporters, the Federal Reserve, the status quo, and pizza magnate Herman Cain’s straw poll victory coverage versus media coverage of his straw poll victories.
“Time has changed — and if it is true that [supporters] are coming my way, I tell you what, we have a solid base,” Paul insisted on “Morning Joe.” Paul’s supporters have carried the Texas Congressman to several straw poll victories in recent months. Last weekend, Paul won a Iowa straw poll at the NFRA convention in Des Moines, Iowa. Paul took first place at the NFRA convention with 82 percent of the votes cast by Iowans.
Paul continues to blast the media for failing to deliver adequate coverage of his straw poll victories and of his campaign in general. Paul turned to media coverage of Cain’s Florida straw poll victory in September to illustrate his point. “He won a straw vote in Florida and it was on the news constantly,” Paul argued. “That same week I won the straw vote in California — zero coverage,”
