BREAKING: Ron Paul is Coming to Cornell
Posted by Alfonse Muglia on April 12, 2012
The Cornell Republicans announced this afternoon that GOP Presidential hopeful Ron Paul will be coming to Cornell next Thursday, April 19.
Paul’s decision to come to Ithaca is undoubtedly affected by the fact that Cornell currently has the seventh largest Youth for Ron Paul chapter in the United States, with 1,381 members. He will hope to rally support among students and those in the greater Ithaca community to vote in the upcoming New York state primary, which will be held on April 24. With Rick Santorum’s departure from the race earlier this week, Paul will look to mobilize many in the conservative base looking for an alternative to Romney heading into the convention.
The campaign event will be co-sponsored by the Cornell Republicans and Cornell Libertarians. The announcement comes after months of behind-the-scenes work on the part of the Republicans and their president Raj Kannappan, who has been in contact with Paul’s team since last semester.
With one of the largest turnouts in Cornell Republicans’ history expected, the club has booked Lynah Rink as the venue. Clink here for out more information about the event and to reserve your ticket.
