Ron Paul Snags North Country Newspaper Endorsements
Papers call for “powerful” alternative to Romney, Obama.
Three North Country newspapers – The Littleton Courier, Berlin Reporter, and Coos County Democrat – have all endorsed Ron Paul for President, according to a campaign press release Jan. 4.
In the endorsements, the papers noted that Paul had never voted to raise taxes or to bailout Wall Street banks. They also noted that Paul’s “prediction that the United States can no longer afford the economic cost of our overseas commitments makes many Republicans uncomfortable, possibly by the very truth of the assertion.”
The papers also noted that voters seem “desperate for an alternative” other than front-runner, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The endorsements stated that the voting public had lost faith in President Barack Obama but were also not sold on Romney replacing him.
“Powerful leaders like Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan change the political landscape. This is what Ron Paul would do for our country and why we support him,” the endorsement stated.
The Paul campaign announced that the candidate planned to be back in New Hampshire on Jan. 6. He will hold a Friday rally at Jet Aviation in Nashua in the afternoon and a rally at UNH at 7 p.m. Paul will participate in both the WMUR-TV/ABC debate at Saint Anselm College in Manchester Saturday night and Union Leader/NBC debate in Concord on Sunday morning. Paul will be in Meredith on Sunday afternoon and at rallies in Manchester, Hollis, and Concord on Monday.
His son, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-KY, will hold a discussion about his father’s campaign at The Draft in Concord at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, as part of the Substance Over Soundbites series, sponsored by the Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy.
