Ron Paul - Ron Paul in Kansas City

June 22, 2007

Kansas City enthusiastically welcomed Congressman Ron Paul last Friday, June 15th. [VK Notice]

Dr. Paul started the day with an interview by the editorial board of the Kansas City Star. Afterwards, he spoke to the National Right to Life Convention where he received a standing ovation. A reporter for the Los Angeles Times then interviewed Dr. Paul for over an hour for a major article to be published in a few weeks. After the interview, Missouri State Representative Jim Guest hosted a luncheon for Dr. Paul. They were joined by Missouri State Representative Brian Yates.

That evening, enthusiasm for Ron Paul’s campaign for president was in full display at the historic Uptown theater in midtown Kansas City. The Ron Paul Kansas City MeetUp group and others organized a rally for Dr. Paul at the Uptown. Theater management estimated the crowd to be over 700 people.

There were people of all ages in the crowd; from all walks for life. They were friendly, energetic and eager to support Dr. Paul's campaign for president. Missouri Representative Jim Guest introduced Congressman Paul to the cheering crowd. They gave Dr. Paul an enthusiastic welcome that would make any of the other presidential candidates envious.

Throughout the day, a two-man camera crew from the New York Times photographed Dr. Paul for an upcoming article in the New York Times Sunday magazine. The crew traveled with Dr. Paul to Phoenix the next day.
