Political experts say state caucus could benefit Ron Paul

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- With Washington's caucus only two weeks away Ron Paul is hoping the energy following his campaign helps him win the state.

Political experts watching Paul's appearance say visiting places like the Tri-Cities is a smart move for the Texas congressman.

Washington has 43 delegates. Experts say because there's no primary this year and our political system could benefit the candidate.

"Energy, enthusiasm or supporters is more important than money. In the primary states, you have to spend millions of dollars on advertising," explains political science professor Gary Bullert.

Bullert adds since spending money in a caucus state isn't a concern for Paul, the strategy is to create enough hype to flow into the March 3rd caucus.
