Takes Top Location at Iowa Straw Poll in Ames
ANKENY, IA –On
Thursday the presidential campaign of 12-term Republican

Republican Party of Iowa. Paul's campaign placed the highest bid at an
auction of real estate for this August's straw poll. The spot is the
same location held by the Mitt Romney campaign at the straw poll in
"The Ron Paul campaign is making a full push to be
competitive all across Iowa," said Iowa Campaign Chairman Drew Ivers.
"Our campaign believes this includes the Iowa Straw Poll and we are
delighted to place the winning bid for the best spot at the event."
The Republican Party of Iowa releases plots of land to campaigns based
on an auction held at the party's headquarters. Each campaign is
permitted to bid on any spot they wish, with the minimum bid set at
$15,000 and increasing from there. Ron Paul emerged the victor at the
auction by placing the highest bid for what is widely accepted as the
best spot at the event.
"Ron Paul is exactly the statesman we need at this time of financial
crisis," said Ivers. "We need a proven conservative leader who is right
on the economy and can get our nation back on the right track. We look
forward to making that message known at the Iowa Straw Poll in August.
