U.S. Rep. Ron Paul Event Moved to UI’s Huff Hall

March 12, 2012

Wednesday night's appearance at the University of Illinois by Texas Congressman and Republican Presidential Candidate Ron Paul has been moved.

A spokesman for Congressman Tim Johnson, Phil Bloomer, says the site was switched from Foellinger Auditorium to Huff Hall in order to accommodate a larger crowd.

Bloomer says all 1,500 seats at Foellinger were claimed within hours Sunday night. Huff Hall holds more than 4,000 people, so tickets for the free event won't be required.

Johnson, who plans to introduce the Congressman, calls him one of the most principled men he's met, who's 'unwavering, and an ideological champion for all of us.'

The event starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Doors at Huff Hall open at 6.
