Ron Paul invests in Minn. in search of 1st GOP win

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- Ron Paul was making his final appeal for Minnesota Republican caucus votes with drop-ins at two sites where ballots will be cast Tuesday.

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- Ron Paul was making his final appeal for Minnesota Republican caucus votes with drop-ins at two sites where ballots will be cast Tuesday.

The 76-year-old Texas congressman with particular appeal among younger voters has invested days of campaigning and money for television ads ahead of caucuses in Minnesota, where he hopes to eke out the first win of his presidential campaign.

He planned a caucus-night party outside Minneapolis.

Paul's strategy is to concentrate on caucus states where he can amass national convention delegates even if he doesn't win. He has hit on anti-war themes and cast himself as the candidate most committed to cutting government spending.

Paul finished fourth in Minnesota four years ago. Mitt Romney won the contest in 2008.
