The Republican National Convention is not going to be the only political gathering in Tampa in late August.

Supporters of Texas congressman Ron Paul are planning a “Paul Festival” at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa just before the Republican National Convention nominates Paul presidential campaign rival Mitt Romney.

The Tampa Bay Times described the event as “a three-day festival of music, entertainment and activism.”

With potential crowd estimates topping 20,000, PaulFest could end up bigger than RomneyFest.

A group of Paul backers called “Liberty Unleashed” is negotiating with state fairgrounds officials to lock in an event to take place from August 24 to 26. The Republican convention is scheduled to open the next morning at an arena about ten miles away....
