(December 14, 2007)--A 200-foot long blimp bearing the name of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas began flying over North Carolina Friday.
Spokesman Bryce Henderson says the blimp took off from Elizabeth City, with flyovers planned at Raleigh, Greensboro and Charlotte, North Carolina.
The aerial billboard, in support of the Texas congressman's run for the White House, has on one side: "Who is Ron Paul? Google Ron Paul."
The other side reads "Ron Paul Revolution."
Supporters who aren’t officially connected to Paul’s campaign are paying for the blimp.
The former Libertarian has opposed the war in Iraq.
He has low poll numbers but soaring support among anti-government voters on the Internet.
