Matt Welch reported on Ron Paul's backing by anti-illegal immigration groups, and Michael Moynihan reported on how this could help him surge in Nevada (where polls close pretty soon). Meanwhile, in the last of the big four states where Paul expects to do well, I get this news from the campaign:
Today, South Carolina Minuteman Civil Defense Corp. announced today their appreciation of Republican presidential candidate and Texas Congressman Ron Paul's policy on illegal immigration.
In a letter to Paul received today from South Carolina Minuteman Project Coordinator Ed Graham, Graham wrote, "The South Carolina Minuteman is pleased to know your stand on illegal immigration. We support you in this effort. You have demonstrated a real knowledge of the illegal alien problem and have taken action that was within your power to accomplish so great a task in your district.
Ron Paul's state coordinator Brian Gentry said, "Ron Paul is pleased with the South Carolina Minuteman's letter of support, the only such letter Graham is issuing just before the South Carolina primary."
In other press release news, Dennis Kucinich is crying to the FCC about CNN not inviting him to the next debate. I'd play the world's smallest violin, but that's actually what Kucinich uses for recitals.
Credit to Ron Paul, here. He's complained about debate exclusions and gotten allies to un-endorse the trouble debates, but he's never thrown a legal tantrum.
*This is a Minutemen reference. I'm sorry.
