Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will make an appearance in Dearborn the day before the 2012 presidential primary elections, Paul's campaign announced Tuesday.
Included in a series of Michigan stops for Paul is a speaking engagement at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center on Monday, Feb. 27.
Paul will speak in the Michael Guido Theater beginning at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Dubbed as the "Doctors for Dr. Ron Paul Rally," the Detroit News reports that the event will include support from area doctors.
It is co-sponsored by the University of Michigan-Dearborn's Arab Student Union group. Former ASU president, UM-Dearborn graduate and current Michigan State University medical student Hussein Saghir will introduce Paul.
According to ASU, pre-registration for the Dearborn rally is available online, and registered attendees will be admitted at 6 p.m. Those who do not wish to register may still attend if seats are available, but will not be admitted until 6:30 p.m.
Paul is the only GOP candidate who has made a recent campaign stop in Dearborn prior to Feb. 28's presidential primary.
The event in Dearborn will conclude a series of stops in Michigan cities for Paul, who is also heading to Central Michigan University on Saturday, the Pinaccle Center in Hudsonville on Sunday, and MSU on Monday afternoon.
He is expected to target his campaign at youth and small business supporters.
