Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Presidential candidate Ron Paul drawing diverse crowds

Mike Wereschagin has an article about Ron Paul in this Sunday's Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
"It's amazing to me" that voters keep re-electing Paul, said Dude Payne, a Democratic county commissioner in Brazoria County, where Paul lives. Paul's biggest asset -- besides his slogan, "The Taxpayer's Best Friend" -- probably is his consistency, said Payne, who pointed out that even after the controversial 2003 Texas redistricting added more Democratic voters to Paul's district, he beat a Democrat with about 60 percent of the vote.

"I don't think anybody can beat him," Payne said. "He pretty much votes no on any kind of pork."
