Ron Paul at the University of Nevada Reno

Congressman Ron Paul has made his first visit to the Silver State since announcing Tuesday that he is starting a Presidential exploratory committee.

With the added excitement of a possible future candidacy in the air, Dr. Paul arrived at the University of Nevada, Reno Tuesday flanked by reporters, video cameras and a healthy crowd of Ron Paul Revolutionaries and curious students who were having their first encounter with the now-famous Congressman from Texas.

The campus book store sold out of copies of Ron Paul’s new book “Liberty Defined”, as supporters lined up for a chance to receive an autograph.

The University of Nevada Reno Young Americans for Liberty are a young chapter, but their enthusiasm for hosting Dr. Paul translated into a serious commitment to getting out the word on campus and using the event as a way to recruit new leaders to the cause of liberty.
