CHICAGO ― The Ron Paul 2008 Presidential Campaign Committee last week opened four additional offices in the state of Illinois. The new field offices - in Downers Grove, Bloomington, Edwardsville and Carbondale – will serve supporters mobilizing to reach voters in advance of the February 5 primary election. Ron Paul has delegate and alternate candidates on the Republican primary ballot in every congressional district in Illinois.
“Backing for Dr. Paul is widespread in Illinois,” remarked Dr. Joe Cesarone, Ron Paul 2008 Illinois campaign coordinator. “These offices will function as regional hubs, operating to maximize the dissemination of Ron Paul’s unique, resounding message of true limited government and individual freedom.
“Momentum for this campaign began building in Illinois early in 2007,” added Cesarone. “We’ve seen exponential growth in support since that time and anticipate a strong showing February 5.”
Ron Paul’s Illinois appeal was confirmed in August 2007, when he pulled a strong third, with 19 percent, at the Illinois Republican Party presidential straw poll in Springfield. The next month, he drew 1,500 to a Chicago rally.
