Ron Paul wins California GOP straw poll
September 17, 2011
Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul is the winner of a straw poll conducted among Golden State Republicans.
The Texas congressman drew large, boisterous crowds of supporters for several speaking appearances at the state party convention under way this weekend at the JW Marriott in downtown Los Angeles. He won roughly 45 percent of the 833 ballots cast.
“I think the main purpose of our Constitution and political action should be the preservation of liberty,” Paul told delegates on Constitution Day.
