Paul Rallies GOP Support In St. Cloud, Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — U.S. Rep. Ron Paul is rallying Minnesota supporters as his campaign looks to the Minnesota caucus for its first state win in the Republican presidential race.

The Texas congressman spoke to more than 1,500 supporters at the Minneapolis Convention Center Monday night. Earlier he rallied several hundred more in St. Cloud, including a large number of college students.

Paul touched called for ending U.S. military involvement around the world and limiting the spending and influence of the federal government. He says he’s called dangerous by his critics because he wants to shake up the status quo.

Paul’s Minnesota campaign manager says it would be a “game changer” in the presidential race if he could pull off a Minnesota win. Paul is planning to be in the state on Tuesday.
