Utah-based super PAC supports Paul — not Romney

< Previous Page

Niederhauser has managed their millions, while Harmon has focused his attention on their online ads, even taking a reduced role at Orabrush. They say most of the company’s employees are not Paul supporters.

"Jeffrey and I being Ron Paul supporters, we kind of drive our co-workers crazy," Niederhauser said.

Rally for Ron Paul

Endorse Liberty, the biggest super PAC supporting Ron Paul’s presidential run, has focused almost exclusively on Internet ads, but the group is throwing its first public event this week.

A political rally for Paul will take place Wednesday at the SCERA Center for the Arts in Orem, 745 S. State St., at 7 p.m.

The group has rented out Utah County studios and booked actors through a talent agency to create a series of "Fake Politician" spots in which impersonators point out the political liabilities of Romney, Santorum and the other candidates. The group has also created videos espousing Paul’s goals of eliminating the Federal Reserve and ending the war in Afghanistan.

The spots are placed primarily on Google, Facebook and StumbleUpon, allowing them to target the ads to specific audiences in the primary states. They believe their efforts have boosted Paul’s cause, though their favorite candidate still lags behind the front-runners. Their new goal is to find a way to reach older voters online.

"We are big believers in online advertisers," Niederhauser said. "And we believe the online space is not being used to its full potential."
