ITHACA, N.Y. -- Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul paid a visit to a traditionally democratic town.
Paul made a stop in Ithaca Thursday to speak at Cornell University. Thousands of students came out to hear his message of smaller government and more personal freedoms.
Paul says energy in the room was strong, but he wouldn't make any predictions about winning New York's upcoming presidential primary.
"It certainly makes one believe that if we have enough time and enough money we could, but we're up against big odds with a lot of money and we're very fortunate we can raise a significant amount of money, but to say run a statewide race in California or something, it's hard to compete, so I'm not making any rash predictions. I'm very pleased with our progress and in many ways, we're doing better than I expected," Paul said.
Paul will face Newt Gingrich and frontrunner Mitt Romney in the Republican primary Tuesday.
