WILLISTON — Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has expanded his North Dakota visit to include Dickinson, Jamestown and Bismarck in addition to his Williston stop.
The U.S. Congressman from Texas will hold a town hall meeting Sunday in Dickinson. The event is at 3 p.m. at the Ramada Grand Dakota Lodge.
At 7 p.m. Sunday, Paul will participate in a North Dakota Policy Council educational event that is open to the public. That event is in the Williston High School Auditorium. At 8 p.m. there will be a fundraiser with Paul, with proceeds going to the North Dakota Policy Council.
Paul also will speak at Republican district conventions in Jamestown and Bismarck on Monday.
He will greet convention-goers and speak briefly at 1 p.m. Monday at the Jamestown Knights of Columbus. At 5:30 p.m. Monday, he will speak briefly at the district convention held at Shiloh Christian Elementary School inBismarck.
Brett Narloch, executive director of the NDPC, said Paul’s visit is not an official campaign stop. The NDPC is a nonpartisan think tank based in Bismarck.
“The reason that he’s coming to speak at an event hosted by us is just because we share a lot of the same ideas about keeping the government small,” Narloch said.
North Dakota Oil Country is becoming popular with presidential hopefuls. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum stopped by Tioga on Wednesday, where he announced that he would push for the completion of the Keystone XL pipeline if he was elected.
