If the Ames Straw Poll was limited to only GOP activists from Story County, it would appear that the Ron Paul presidential campaign had a leg up. On Thursday the campaign announced its third endorsement from GOP Story County chairmen.

“My endorsement of Congressman Ron Paul today is not simply because he wants to shrink the size of the Federal Government. It is because he is the only presidential candidate who would have invoked the Tenth Amendment and not granted the Federal Government 95 percent of its current size, power and programs in the first place,” said Hill, who is employed as market president at Premier Credit Union in Ames.
“If you want to preserve your community, preserve your liberties and reverse the tide of the ever-growing, ever in debt, and ever-intrusive federal government, please stand with me this Saturday at the Ames Straw Poll in support of Congressman Ron Paul for President in 2012.” FULL STORY
