From the press release:
Northbrook, IL – July 19, 2011 – A group of supporters of presidential candidate and twelve-term congressman Ron Paul have formed Revolution PAC, a political action group dedicated to Congressman Paul’s candidacy and ideas, it was announced today.
“Ron Paul is known for having exceptionally creative and energetic grassroots support. Revolution PAC will help make some of their best ideas a reality,” said Advisory Board Chairman Dr. Thomas Woods. Woods, whose 2009 bestseller Meltdown features a foreword by Dr. Paul and who has spoken at many of the congressman’s events, says Revolution PAC will pursue a variety of strategies to promote the candidate’s ideas.
“We’ve got great ideas for television and radio ads – and other things, too – that will highlight the congressman’s unmatched record and differentiate him from the other candidates,” Woods said.
As a Super PAC, Revolution PAC is not subject to the $2500 maximum that applies to presidential campaigns, so it provides a further outlet for those who have already donated the maximum to a campaign.
“I’m delighted to be on board with Revolution PAC, which is well placed to channel grassroots energy and release a professional product in support of Congressman Paul,” added board member Jack Hunter, the author and radio personality who collaborated with Senator Rand Paul on the latter’s book, The Tea Party Goes to Washington.
