ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOX) - Texas Congressman Ron Paul brought his Presidential campaign to St. Charles on Saturday.

The G.O.P. contender spoke to more than 2500 supporters at Lindenwood University.

Afterward, Paul said he enjoys speaking on college campuses, “Young people are more independent-minded. They’re more principled. They like it. They’re opposed to war. Once they’ve heard the story about the Federal Reserve, they’re intrigued. And they always say they like my stand on the Constitution.”

Paul’s message at Lindenwood was less government and more individual freedom.  A U.S. Marine veteran in the crowd liked what he heard, “Quit printing the money. Bring our troops home, and secure our borders.”

From St. Charles, Paul headed to Springfield, another Missouri Republican stronghold.
