The libertarian Texas congressman is hoping that his passionate base and strong organization will propel him to victory in Iowa, where Gingrich has not spent the time or resources to establish an effective ground game and Romney has never been able to gain traction.
“The voters are looking for authentic conservatives who are able to show a decades-long career of consistently walking the walk of Constitutional principles, limited government, and promoting sound economic policies," Benton said. "Ron Paul is the only Republican presidential candidate with that record.”
Paul placed second in a PPP poll of the state released earlier this week, trailing Gingrich by 9 points but leading Romney.
