KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- A former presidential candidate and nationally-known figure makes a visit to Grand Junction on Tuesday.
Dr. Ron Paul spoke to a crowd of more than 1,200 people at Colorado Mesa University.
He addressed topics like the education system, and constitutional liberties.
He also spoke briefly on his thoughts on the Affordable Care Act and answered questions from spectators.
“I thought it was fantastic,” said Margaret Lurbey, CMU student. “Ron Paul always stands for the constitution. He always promotes liberty, and he did an excellent job today.”
“I would have liked to hear more about his perspective on school and education,” said Tiffiney Upscurch, El Paso County resident. “That’s important to me. We have three kids and I have a kiddo who is in special needs.”
“I really like his point on weapons and, gun control in the U.S.” said Julie Page, Grand Junction resident.
Officials who hosted the event told NewsChannel 5 that tickets were sold out, so they had to expand the ball room to accompany everyone.
This is expected to be the former congressman's only stop in Colorado this year.
