Ron Paul Plans New Event After Fox Debate Exclusion

Ron Paul Plans New Event After Fox Debate Exclusion

Politico

January 1, 2008

Ron Paul’s campaign says he’s planning an alternative event at the same time as the Fox News Channel’s Republican forum in New Hampshire on Sunday if the network continues to hold back on an invitation, a campaign official tells Politico.

Already, blogs are alive with cries of “censorship” from Paul’s vocal and prolific followers.

Jesse Benton, Paul’s national press secretary, said he likely would hold a town hall with New Hampshire citizens — an event that would amount to counter-programming and would likely generate considerable publicity for the anti-war libertarian.

“We’re not going to sit around and cry about it,” Benton said.

“By all metrics, there is only a case for including Dr. Paul in the forum. We think it’s a little bit of a head-scratcher.”

Paul announced he raised $19.5 million in the last quarter of the year, and party sources say that is more than any other Republican campaign.

Fox News has not specified its exact criteria for the debate, but debate planners have long yearned to winnow the cast to permit more substantive and detailed conversation.

Fox has said it will make its final announcement about invitations after Thursday’s Iowa caucuses.

Benton said the campaign has placed about six calls to Marty Ryan, executive producer of political programming for Fox News Channel but said they have not been returned.

Ryan did not immediately return an e-mail seeking comment on New Year’s Day.

Paul will participate in an ABC debate in New Hampshire on Saturday night, Benton said.
