South Carolina – Not in Ron Paul’s Plans?
It is well believed that Ron Paul is prepping up for another run for President. News flash right?
But according to recent fundraising emails from the campaign, it does not appear that South Carolina plays into his plans very much. He has stated plans in Iowa, New Hampshire, Mississippi, Florida, New York (TV appearances) and Nevada.
I mean, why would he waste his resources on South Carolina republicans. Generally speaking, most republicans (not all) elected in this state are more concerned with social conservative issues and have no issues with government power grabs. Although many claim to be fiscal conservatives and less government, actions by the state legislature trend other wise.
Not only that, you can see how well he was received during the last election cycle. They were more amused by Giuliani questioning Paul for his non-interventionist policies than rational reasoning, a GOP leader attempted to ban him from attending local events and he garnered only 5% of the vote in the primary.
South Carolina has chosen the eventual republican nominee for president since 1980, so it seems foolish to bypass it. Either way, this strategy move is interesting.
What do you think about Paul’s potential campaign strategy?
