Three-time presidential hopeful Dr. Ron Paul will speak about current news issues ahead of the upcoming mid-term elections this Friday, October 31st, as part of the National Center for Policy Analysis/Hatton W. Sumners Distinguished Lecture Series weekend. Dr. Paul has been very vocal about the November elections, Ebola, ISIS and the Middle East in recent weeks.

Media are invited to attend and cover. Recording is restricted to the first 5 minutes of speech, but a few minutes with Dr. Paul will be available for recorded Q&A after the speech, by request.

Dr. Paul served in the U.S. Air Force as a flight surgeon in the 1960s before winning his first Congressional bid in the mid-1970s and serving nine terms until his retirement last year. Paul made three unsuccessful bids for nomination as a presidential candidate – as a Libertarian in 1988 and as a Republican in 2008 and 2012.

In Congress, Paul served on the House Banking Committee, where he was a strong advocate for sound monetary policy and an outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve. He also was a key member of the Gold Commission, advocating a return to a gold standard.

Paul continues to work for limited constitutional government through organizations he has founded, including the Foundation for Rational Economics and Education (FREE), Campaign for Liberty, and Liberty PAC, and his online network The Ron Paul Channel. His son, Rand, has been the junior GOP senator for Kentucky since his election in 2011.

Ron Paul’s latest book, The School Revolution, offers a provocative look at America’s broken education system – and what Americans can do to fix it.
