Ron Paul Snaps Up Tickets for Southern Republican Leadership Conference

March 05, 2010 | Last updated: July 31, 2020

In the wake of his somewhat surprising — and very soft-peddled — victory in the CPAC straw poll, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) is gearing up for a big showing at the next GOP cattle call. Paul’s Campaign for Liberty is going to purchase hundreds of tickets for the event, held next month in New Orleans.

If a CPAC-sized contingent of Paul fans show up, would it be enough to win the event’s straw poll? Well, in 2006, Sen. Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) won the straw poll with a 36.9 percent plurality — of only 1,427 ballots.

An email with some info about the big buy, after the jump:
