Ron Paul Headed To Iowa For Family Leader Lecture Series

Though he has said that he has not made up his mind on another Presidential run in 2012, Texas Rep. Ron Paul will be making a trip to the early caucus state of Iowa on March 7th to headline a presidential lecture series for The Family Leader, a Christian organization with influence over the ever important evangelical voters in Iowa.

Rep. Paul drew an intense, almost cult-like following of young voters on the Internet with his 2008 presidential campaign setting fundraising records for the Web. He is still popular in Libertarian circles and was recently given the Chairmanship of the House Domestic Monetary Policy Subcommittee, putting the gavel of the panel overseeing the Federal Reserve into the hands of one of the central bank’s most outspoken critics.

Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty kicked off the lecture series today as can be seen here in an earlier White House 2012 post. Rep. Paul will be giving a “pro-family” lecture. The Family Leader’s lecture series, which goes through August, gives Iowans a chance “to become better informed on the pro-family vision of each lecturer,” according to a news release announcing Paul’s participation. The lectures will be videotaped, sent out to the group’s mailing list and posted on its website.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., speaks on April 11 and former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum is on tap for May 2. Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker, and Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, have also confirmed they will participate.
