1,000 expected at tonight’s Reagan dinner – and the first is reading her BibleSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Fri, 11/04/2011 - 19:32
The first attendee seated at a table tonight at the Iowa GOP’s Reagan dinner was Katie, a young woman from western Iowa who said she came to to hear presidential candidate Ron Paul.
Before the doors officially opened for the big fundraising dinner at 6 p.m., she sat alone at a table reading from a small Gideon’s Bible and a copy of the U.S. Constitution. Rubber bracelets printed with the web site Infowars.com circled her wrists.
“I want to see politics in action live,” said Katie, who declined to share her last name. “And to be quite honest, I want to meet Ron Paul in person.”
She said she was taken by Paul’s fiscal viewpoints and his consistent record of fidelity to the Constitution — “which is more than any neocon or RINO in Congress, or Democrat for that matter, can say,” she said.
Five candidates speak tonight, and Paul, a Texas congressman, is first.
