LAKE JACKSON, Texas — It’s been a good week for Ron Paul: a
statistical tie at the Ames Straw Poll in Iowa last Saturday, a thousand
New Hampshire voters at the Concord, New Hampshire office opening
Wednesday night, and today, a resounding victory in the New Hampshire
Young Republicans Straw Poll in New Castle.
With 45% of the vote, Paul soundly beat his closest rivals at this
traditional lobster bake, with Mitt Romney earning 10% of the vote,
followed by Thaddeus McCotter and Rick Perry, tied at 8%.
