MANY STILL WAITING FOR THE RIGHT REPUBLICAN
It’s no secret that many Republican voters — the ones who are even paying attention at all — are not crazy about this year’s crop of presidential candidates. Surveys have showed the enthusiasm level running low.
Texas Congressman Ron Paul has passionate followers, though, and drew a sizable crowd in iconically-named Freedom, New Hampshire, population 1,489, on Friday.
The visit stirred an otherwise peaceful morning at the century-old Freedom Village Store, which sells an assortment of coffee, crafts and antiques and is staffed by volunteers.
John Hogan, 77, a retired Navy intelligence officer, caused a ripple when he brought in a life-size cut-out of President Barack Obama shortly before Paul’s arrival.
