Ron Paul and Tonight’s Debate
According to Brent Budowski, Paul will win tonight’s debate. He writes:
Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) will win tonight’s big Republican debate because he will be the only candidate discussing serious ideas in a Republican field that is one of the weakest in modern presidential politics.
Since most Republican candidates with a chance to win are not participating in tonight’s debate, it will be a test of former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. My guess is that Pawlenty will be trying to appease various Republicans while Dr. Paul will be clearly advocating his ideas and will win the battle of the sound bites after the formal debate has ended.
