United Republicans of California (UROC) Announce Ron Paul Endorsement

The Ron Paul campaign today announced that the United Republicans of California, or UROC, have thrown their unanimous support behind Ron Paul.

The UROC was founded back in 1963 to support "Mr. Conservative", Barry Goldwater's Presidential bid, and represents the traditional conservative wing of the California Republican Party.

Ron Paul's campaign chairman, Kent Snyder, said “The unanimous endorsement from the United Republicans of California proves what the campaign has been saying all along; Ron Paul is the only true conservative and real Republican in the race.”

In UROC's official endorsement, they refer to Congressman Paul as “the leading advocate for freedom in our nation’s capital.”

UROC also acknowledged Ron Paul's voting record:

· has never voted to raise taxes;
· has always voted against unbalanced budgets;
· has always rejected federal restriction on gun ownership;
· has never voted to raise congressional pay; and
· has always voted down the increase of executive branch powers.

Further, the United Republicans of California recognized Ron Paul:

· voted against the unconstitutional Patriot Act
· voted against any government regulation of the internet
· voted against the unconstitutional War in Iraq
