TAMPA, Fla. — Ron Paul supporters are unhappy that Republican National Convention organizers aren’t letting them throw a festival honoring the Texas congressman and presidential candidate the weekend before the gathering.
Spokesman Bryan Siemon said his group is organizing a three-day “PaulFest” at the Florida State Fairgrounds that would include music, comedians and speakers. But the Republicans control Tampa’s public venues during the convention and haven’t given PaulFest approval to use the fairgrounds.
