Wednesday was a difficult day for The American Independent News Network, which is the larger entity that operates The Iowa Independent. Our chief executive and founder announced two of our sister sites would close and their content would be moved to The American Independent.
Ron Paul returning to Iowa
Paul, who finished fifth in the 2008 Iowa Caucuses, is making his third visit to Iowa in 2010. Hoodjer says Paul is “expected to speak at the University of Iowa and headline fundraisers for various freedom candidates in state legislative races.” WHO-AM is reporting he will be in the Hawkeye State Oct. 28-29, although details of his trip are not yet official.
Paul was last in Iowa back in June, when he addressed a Des Moines crowd the night before the Republican Party of Iowa convention. Before that, he headlined an event for the conservative group Campaign for Liberty in Des Moines in May.
