Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), who announced last week in Iowa that he was forming a presidential exploratory committee to potentially run for the presidency, is now gaining a new status among the candidates: The first to open a headquarters in Iowa.
The Des Moines Register reports:
The congressman will arrive Tuesday to unveil his Iowa headquarters in Ankeny, according to David Fischer, vice chairman of Paul’s Iowa team.
It’s the first candidate headquarters in Iowa.
Given the rudimentary shape of the current 2012 GOP field, does this make him the frontrunner?
