Politico: Ron Paul will Return to S.C. on SundaySubmitted by njcarlos on Wed, 01/11/2012 - 17:00
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Ron Paul sought Wednesday to seize on momentum from his strong second-place finish in New Hampshire.
“We sent a pretty positive message out of Iowa. We sent out a pretty positive message last night in New Hampshire. And South Carolina is next on the list,” the Texas congressman told more than 200 enthusiastic supporters crowded into an airport hangar on a rainy afternoon.
Though Paul joined the other GOP candidates in rushing to South Carolina following the New Hampshire primary, his stop was essentially a layover on the way to Texas, where he is taking a respite until Sunday. Once he returns he plans to stay through the primary on Jan. 21.
Unlike its operations in Iowa and New Hampshire, the Paul campaign does not have a deep organization here. But Paul said after his speech Wednesday that he will finish “in the top tier.” He’s currently fourth in the most recent polling, trailing Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.
