Ron Paul Supporters, Alive and Well in Ohio
By Juliet Eilperin
FINDLAY, Ohio -- Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) may have largely receded from the national scene, but his adherents are still playing a role in the presidential election -- by interrupting political rallies.
As GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin addressed an enthusiastic crowd here, a lone protester started calling out "Ron Paul! Ron Paul!"
He continued shouting until nearby attendees began chanting, "John McCain! John McCain!"
For a few moments Palin continued speaking, as if unaware of the interruption. But just after the protester was taken out of the arena, the Alaska governor remarked from the stage, "If that was a protester they escorted out, they escorted him out a little bit early. I think that person would have learned a little bit..."
And then, cheers from the crowd drowned the candidate out.
