Presidential Candidate Ron Paul is leading in Iowa, with the caucuses there being the first of the primary votes that lead to nomination.
An enthusiastic observer of these new development is the Paul campaign’s official blogger, Jack Hunter, a native of Charleston,who still works from there.
Hunter is a Tea Party activist, who helped Rand Paul write his book, “The Tea Party Goes to Washington.” He says he is disappointed in the lack of support in the Palmetto State for one of the founders of the Tea Party ideals.
He said the state’s Tea Parties are not the same as they were in the 2010 elections. South Carolina Radio Network’s Ashley Byrd spoke with Hunter about this and what Paul faces in South Carolina. He had some firm words for the Tea Party movement.
The interview began with Byrd asking about the role of campaign blogger.
