Bethel’s Benson Great Hall briefly became a focal point of the Republican presidential campaign on Saturday afternoon, when it hosted libertarian congressman Ron Paul of Texas and the 1500 people who filled the hall to hear him speak. The event was sponsored by Bethel’s College Republicans, whose leadership includes History major Grant Erickson and History minor Mike Thompson. (Both were pictured in the Saint Paul Pioneer Press story on the event.) History alum Ryan Soller (’11) has a cameo at the beginning of this report from KARE-TV on the Paul rally.
