ABC's Z. Byron Wolf reports from Nashua, N.H.: Ron Paul does not have a security detail. The closest thing is a retired customs inspector who acts as Paul's driver and body man on the road.It was almost surprising to find this. I don't know if it helps the man, but it might not hurt either, who knows.
So, it was a little odd to see an enormous -- truly, a well-muscled giant -- standing behind Paul in a red polo shirt, and looking menacing when the Texas congressman was mobbed by supporters after a speech to a meeting of the Liberty Forum in Nashua, N.H., today.
Turns out, it was not an addition to the small cadre of family and staff that travel with Paul, but a new supporter: Glen Jacobs, aka "Kane" from the WWE. Jacobs was appearing at the Liberty Forum, independent of Paul, but has endorsed the congressman's bid for the Republican presidential nomination.
Oh I should mention, in my excursions to the North Side of town this winters somewhere along the L tracks was a building that has a Ron Paul poster. Looks like Ron Paul fever has officially reached the North Side of Chicago.
The New Hampshire primary is on January 8, 2007.
