Campaign 2012

Video: Ron Paul wows 'em at UCLA

The Ron Paul campaign reported that the tennis stadium at UCLA holds 10,000 and that their guy filled the place to capacity. Neither fact is true, but they still had a healthy crowd of about 5,000 for Wednesday night's rally. Not necessarily or even mainly UCLA students; it was a rally of Youth for Ron Paul. Video from the Daily Bruin.
