ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul tells a crowd in St. Cloud it’s time to reverse course.

Paul launched his Minnesota campaign Saturday, saying the U.S. must reverse course on monetary policy, erosion of the rule of law and military engagement in the Middle East.

The St. Cloud Times reports Paul spoke before a near-capacity crowd at the St. Cloud Civic Center.

The Texas congressman told them U.S. wars in the Mideast aren’t bringing peace to the region and are bankrupting the country.

Paul spoke on the home turf of GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann. St. Cloud is the largest city in her congressional district.

Bachmann spokeswoman Alice Stewart says Bachmann welcomes him to Minnesota, and he’ll be met by some of the nicest people her state has to offer.
