The Texas State University chapter of Young Americans for Liberty is playing host to the organization’s statewide convention on Saturday, April 12 on campus. Paul’s keynote address will be at 6 p.m. in Centennial Hall Room 157.
A remnant of Students for Ron Paul, an operation that provided critical field support during the congressman’s campaigns in 2008 and 2012 for the Republican Party presidential nomination, Young Americans for Liberty has chapters at more than 520 universities and colleges in all 50 states, according to the national group’s website. In addition to his GOP candidacies, Paul was the Libertarian Party’s presidential nominee in 1980.
The organization is co-sponsoring the convention this weekend with FreedomWorks, a political advocacy group chaired by former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey, a Denton Republican.
