Ron Paul gets two new Iowa endorsements ahead of big Debate
Just a day before the big Florida debate, the Ron Paul campaign announced they had received two more endorsements in the first in the nation Caucus state of Iowa. Both are from Clay County, Kris Thiessen is the Clay County GOP Chairwoman as well as a small business owner (she runs the White Glove janitorial service), and Josh Davenport is the Clay County GOP co-chairman, as well as a former supporter of 2008 Iowa Caucus winner Mike Huckabee. Thiessen also founded a local Tea Party group. Both endorsements are obviously quite important, as the Caucuses draw ever nearer, and the debates continue to help shape the field. Ron Paul has continued to improve his standing in the polls, recently a national poll showed him at 13 percent, and even more recently a New Hampshire poll showed Ron in second place with 14 percent, trailing only Mitt Romney, as Perry has just eight percent support in the Granite State. No doubt a win in the Florida debate would help him gain even more ground, as he continues to pass the supposed 'front runners' in the polls. He's already zoomed past Michelle Bachmann nationally, and now he's passed Perry in New Hampshire. He's been close to passing Romney in Iowa for some time, any day now we could hear that he's done that also. We're definitely getting closer and closer to 'President Ron Paul'!
