Next up in the series of Republican Presidential debate video reports Lance Dutson and I filed is an interview with Ron Paul, who is so far capturing much attention online and at events such as Wednesday’s debate, yet has not translated that enthusiasm into poll numbers.

At Wednesday night’s Republican Presidential debate, Lance Dutson and I had a chance to file some video reports from the scene, which we’ll be posting over the next few days. First up, an interview with FoxNews chief political correspondent Carl Cameron:
While the debate wraps up, we’re getting ready to head over to the spin room to shoot some photos and video. If you have questions you’d like us to ask the candidates and/or their flacks in the spin room, text message your question to me at 207-299-8508. My pick for Winners of the debate: John […]

Giuliani answers by stating that we need a “tamper-proof” ID card for […]
