Slow Start at Paul Camp
The floor of the election night headquarters of Texas Representative Ron Paul still has a lot of open space, but more people are entering the room each minute. The Paul staff appears exhausted, and some young men sitting in front of the main stage do not look very animated.
The Paul Camp has a very strong media contingent, with a phalanx of camera crews and journalists spread across the entire back of the mid-sized room. Media crews from as far away as Denmark have gathered to cover Congressman Paul's address.
Kate Baker, who volunteers in the main office, has been dispatching other volunteers around the state. She says she's been working with 500 volunteers in the last week. Many Paul volunteers are still out, and have not returned from campaigning yet.
The pace has been picking up here, and the din of conversation is getting louder.
