The Ron Paul campaign announced it will channel its financial resources and staff to delegate and convention operations instead of upcoming primary states. This includes South Dakota, which votes June 5th.
It's up to the grassroots to carry Dr. Paul’s message and deliver a strong showing on June 5th.
South Dakota sends 28 delegates to the National Convention. To secure delegates, we must get at least 20% in the primary. Ron Paul has polled in 1st place in South Dakota with 22% in a scientific poll conducted by Nielson Brothers Polling and has performed well in neighboring states -- including 27% in Minnesota and 28% in North Dakota!
We have a professional, organized operation independent of the official campaign with a team of passionate and experienced campaign volunteers working for free. We have a database of targeted voters as well as radio ads, fliers and direct-mail ready to go. This can all be done cheaper than the official campaign.
