ANKENY, Iowa — 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul and his son U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) will conduct a daylong whistle-stop tour to energize Iowa caucus goers on the day prior to the first-in-nation voting contest.
On Monday, January 2nd the 12-term Congressman from Texas and the junior Senator from the Commonwealth of Kentucky will make five stops — ones in Polk, Scott, Linn, Black Hawk, and Cerro Gordo counties. In addition, Senator Paul on his own will kick off the day by appearing live in-studio with WHO Radio's Jan Mickelson.
