Republican Ron Paul Excluded from June Iowa Debate

Iowans for Tax Relief and Iowa Christian Alliance hosts a Republican presidential debate Saturday, June 30th in Des Moines. Candidates Mitt Romney, Sam Brownback, Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, Tommy Thompson, and Tom Tancredo will participate. Republican Ron Paul was not invited.

The most ardent tax reformer of the Republican hopefuls, the candidate who scored at the top of all online polls after the MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News debates, and one of the most Christian members of the Republican field was excluded here? Insanity.

One wonders why? What can you do? Drop the people in charge of the debate a nice note (see their email and contact information below), asking that they include Ron Paul, and asking why he wasn’t included in the first place.

Ron Paul will be attending the August 5th debate in Des Moines.
