Meet Iowa’s Ron Paul GOP Delegates

Sometimes you really enjoy producing a piece — and meeting the people who populate the story — and want to give it a little more attention. This is one of those pieces. In August, I met three of the 25 Republican delegates from Iowa as they were preparing to head to Tampa to their party’s national convention. All three are supporters of Ron Paul, and were part of a movement in Iowa that landed 21 pro-Paul delegates on the state’s slate of 25 in the GOP delegation. That made for some interesting dynamics at the RNC, where this story ran as part of the NYTimes’s TimesCast live program from the convention.
