Paul to hold rally at Sun Dome

The Ron Paul campaign will hold a rally at the University of South Florida Sun Dome the afternoon of Sunday, Aug. 26, the day before the opening of the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
USF anticipaties “a major rally with thousands of supporters,” according to a news release concerning the event.
It will begin at noon—doors open at 11 a.m.—and is free and open to the public, the release said.
The rally is in addition to a three-day festival planned by Paul supporters—but not sanctioned by Paul himself—to be held at the State Fairgrounds over the weekend prior to the convention.
Paul’s campaign has said he won’t be attending that event, and instead will appear at his own. That’s because Paul wants to play down long-standing conflicts between his supporters and the Republican Party establishment, and therefore hopes to control the tone of events in which he participates, his campaign chairman has said.
