Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul spoke to a standing room only crowd Tuesday evening on the Texas A&M University campus. The congressman headlined a rally hosted by the student organization "Youth for Ron Paul." Paul discussed his stance on a number of issues, including the nation's debt and foreign policy, emphasizing the need to reduce the size of the federal government. The candidate vowed that, if elected, he would attempt to reduce government spending by $1 trillion in the first year of his presidency.
Paul also touched on the subject of fellow GOP presidential contender Rick Santorum dropping out of the race, commenting that his competitor's departure was a surprise, but one that would possibly "open up some doors" for his campaign. Throughout the event Paul emphasized the impact that young voters have on the political process and expressed appreciation for his enthusiastic reception in College Station.
Ron Paul is now one of the three remaining Republican candidates in the presidential race.
