Ron Paul Has Strong Support in the Pensacola Area

In today's PNJ, the paper profiles Ron Paul supporters in the Pensacola area. Paul's backing in this region mirrors the type that we've seen from his other fans across America.

The Republican presidential candidate's tenacious backers in Pensacola are willing to knock on doors and donate money to help spread the Republican congressman's libertarian message.

You don't even need to read the PNJ piece to understand the type of following that Paul has in this area. Just look at all the homemade "Ron Paul for President" signs you see around town. I have yet to see any homemade signs for the other candidates that are running for president.

Like other Paul supporters, Pensacola's backers have harnessed the organizing power of the Internet to spread his message.

Recently, 230 Paul supporters gathered in Pensacola to rally support for the presidential candidate after they organized on the website, The backers in this area have also donated money via the Internet. Paul's campaign contributions have been pouring in from supporters who have donated money using the candidate's website.

In November, his campaign's website raised 4 million dollars in just one day. This is amazing if you consider the amount of media attention that Paul has recieved; they really haven't been paying attention to the candidate.

If you'd like to know more about Ron Paul and you're unsure of where he stands on the issues, ask one of his supporters to explain them to you. In order to spread his message, Paul's fervent backers are willing to talk your ear off in an attempt to gain more support for the candidate. I've seen it happen several times.
