Republican Presidntial candidate Ron Paul of Texas is now tied with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich in the latest Public Policy Polling poll of Iowa GOP caucusgoers. Mr. Paul garnered 21 percent of the votes to pull even with Mr. Gingrich who earned 22 percent of the votes. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney took third place with 16 percent of the votes.
The Paul campaign is doing everything in its power to ensure that this “unusual coalition of support” will turn out for the Iowa GOP caucuses on January 3rd. The Paul campaign has organized a “Christmas Vacation with Ron Paul” program that will deploy 500 youth in Iowa to knock on doors and make phone calls for the Texas congressman.
The Paul campaign has also launched a $1 million ad buy in Iowa. The ad blitz features radio, TV and mail ads. Many of the ads focus on Mr. Paul’s chief rival in Iowa, Mr. Gingrich.
