We liked what we saw

Check out this short report of the GOP-Illinois-Straw-Poll, where Ron Paul finished third with about 19%.

The campaign is gaining momentum.

"Perhaps the most surprising development of the day was Congressman Paul’s enthusiastic following and third-place finish. Dozens of Paul supporters marched through the Illinois State Fairgrounds passing out literature and recruiting people to go vote for him.
Thomas Pater, 31, of Monee, and Brian Pater, 27 of Alsip, said they had come to spend the day at the fair but had no plans to participate in the straw poll. But Paul supporters gave them some campaign information and, “we liked what we saw,” Thomas Pater said. Ken Prazak, a 55-year-old Paul volunteer from the Elgin area, called the third-place showing satisfying.

I think it’s a great victory. We own the fair today,” Prazak said. “I’ve been involved in libertarian politics all of my adult life. This is probably the most fun I’ve ever had.”

And now, some Rock`n`Ron Paul:
