Ron Paul. At the event Paul received two more key Iowa
endorsements. Republican State Central Committee member Jeremiah

formally announced their endorsements of Ron Paul for the
Republican Presidential nomination.
"I am proud to fully support Ron Paul as the Republican nominee
for President," said Jeremiah Johnson. "I firmly believe he is
the candidate who best understands our economy and has the best
plan to get our nation past these difficult economic times."
Johnson is a Republican Central Committee member representing
the first Congressional District in Iowa.
Being deemed, "The Godfather of the Tea Party" by Fox News,
Paul's additional endorsement from a key tea party leader is
further evidence of the strong tea party support he has across
"Ron Paul is a true statesman who represents the return to
fiscal responsibility that the Tea Party is looking for," said
Jeff Leucke, organizer of the Dubuque Tea Party. "Ron Paul gets
it more than any other Republican candidate and he has the
knowledge and electability necessary to take on Obama in
November and win."
The announcement of endorsements came at an event Ron Paul held
today in Dubuque as he met with Iowa voters and members of the
media. The event was Ron Paul's sixth visit to Iowa in as many
weeks. Ron Paul was stopping to campaign and meet with Iowa voters
before he needed to fly to New Hampshire for the Republican
Presidential debate this evening.
