San Diego Republicans rank Ron Paul number oneAround the City Thursday, November 17th, 2011
One year from the election and less than two months from the first votes cast to start determining the Republican nominee for president, more than 400 grass roots activists of San Diego Republicans, the local area’s official GOP presence, gathered Monday night to hear from representatives of all the presidential campaigns and participate in a straw poll.
“I was very impressed with the attendance and the quality and passion of the local representatives for the respective candidates,” said Chairman Tony Krvaric. “We congratulate the supporters of Ron Paul for their hard work.”
Official results (367 ballots cast):
Ron Paul 30.5% (112)
Newt Gingrich 22.6% (83)
Mitt Romney 17.4% (64)
Herman Cain 16.1% (59)
Rick Perry 5.7% (21)
Gary Johnson 3.5% (13)
Jon Huntsman 2.2% (8)
Michele Bachmann 2.0% (7)
Rick Santorum 0% (0)
“While there were clearly differing opinions (about) who the party’s standard-bearer should be, everyone agreed to unite behind the eventual nominee because America as we know it will not survive another four years of Barack Obama,” Krvaric concluded.
