SPOKANE-- Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul returned to Spokane Friday.
Paul made a campaign stop at noon at the Spokane Convention Center. This was the second visit to Spokane for Paul in recent weeks. He visited the Convention Center in February.
The Republican presidential candidate says he expects to do well in Washington's caucuses on Saturday.
Paul says his Libertarian-tinged message has always played well in Washington. That's one reason that, seeking his first win, Paul has started running a TV ad in the state attacking his opponents.
Critics wonder if the ads will even make a difference, but supporters hope Paul is taken more seriously. Supporters believe that Paul could make a dent during tomorrow's caucuses.
Paul, wearing a plaid shirt and blue jeans, spoke for more than half and hour to an adoring crowd that interrupted him frequently with applause. Paul also took questions from the audience.
Paul repeated his themes of abolishing the Federal Reserve, cutting foreign involvements and lower or repealing taxes.
The candidate is scheduled to speak later Friday in Vancouver and Seattle. He'll also visit Sandpoint and Moscow on Monday.
Paul also added more campaign stops in the area over the next few days. On Monday he will visit Sandpoint and Moscow.
