Ron Paul Timeline
October 5: Ron Paul said that his campaign has raised more than $8 million in the third fiscal quarter which ended on September 30, 2011. He has raised $4.5 million in the last quarter.
August 16: Ron Paul's campaign says that the media coverage of their campaign is disappointing but not surprising. Paul’s Campaign Spokesperson Gary Howard said “I think the media coverage has definitely been lacking after a pretty significant showing in the straw poll. Dr. Paul came within nine tenths of a percent of winning, yet the winner –rightfully - gets lauded for organizational strength, is declared to have top tier status, etc., while some stories don't even mention name.”
July 25: Ron Paul receives endorsement from Cory Adams, the Republican chairman of Story County in Iowa. Adams says: "I try to go for the candidates that line up mostly with the values, the principles of the founders. Out of all the candidates in this cycle, I found Ron Paul to be the one with the longest, most consistent voting record to back up those principles and concepts." Speaking to CNN, Adams went on to explain how his endorsement will help Ron Paul. "Back in 2008 there were a lot of people within the Republican Party that kind of disregarded Congressman Paul. And basically didn't just count him in and/or wouldn't even mention him. So when you can have a county chair who is part of the Republican Party, part of the establishment and support him, it gives him more credibility within the party and brings him back from the fringe."
July 21: Ron Paul welcomes Jack Hunter as official campaign blogger. Jack Hunter is a conservative commentator and columnist. Jesse Benton, Ron Paul 2012 spokesman says: “Jack Hunter is one of the nation’s foremost conservative commentators and his signing onto the campaign as blogger will be a great help in spreading Dr. Paul’s message of limited government and individual liberty,”.
