LSU audience cheers presidential candidate Paul | Home | The Advocate — Baton Rouge, LA

25 Sep

GOP presidential candidate and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, of Texas, touted ending the country’s wars, including the war on drugs, to a raucous packed crowd Friday at the LSU Union Theater.

As the Republican candidate with the strongest libertarian streak, Paul, 76, focused his talk on restoring personal and economic liberties and freedoms with his campaign motto “Restore America Now.”

Paul said he loves college campuses and meeting students on his “Youth for Ron Paul” tour. When he does, he said, “I find out the message of liberty is alive and well.”

Paul, who last campaigned in Baton Rouge in 2008, is running in a crowded GOP field of candidates led in the polls and fundraising by Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.

Gov. Bobby Jindal has endorsed Perry.
