I learned something new today. Campaigns have official bloggers. And Ron Paul has selected one of the best – Jack Hunter, the Southern Avenger – to be his official blogger! (I actually did try out to be an official blogger for a major campaign in 2010 and was not selected!) Here’s the Daily Paul story! Here’s the RP2012 story.
Jack is well qualified with his libertarian, non-interventionist message:
Hunter, a long-time radio host and The American Conservative Magazine columnist, is a prominent figure on the conservative political scene. He also assisted Sen. Rand Paul with his book The Tea Party Goes to Washington.
“Jack Hunter is one of the nation’s foremost conservative commentators and his signing onto the campaign as blogger will be a great help in spreading Dr. Paul’s message of limited government and individual liberty,” said Ron Paul 2012 spokesman Jesse Benton.
Hunter has worked for WTMA 1250 AM talk radio in Charleston, South Carolina, and writes a column for the Charleston City Paper. Jack also produces widely popular weekly video podcasts. In officially joining the Ron Paul 2012 presidential campaign, Mr. Hunter has stepped down from his position as an Advisory Board Member of the Revolution Super PAC.
My hearty congratulations to Jack on this singular honor and privilege. Meanwhile, this blogger will continue to spread the word about RP and ICLEI and the hoped decline of the EU this summer.
