Several people displayed signs portraying pro-Ron Paul messages and anti-GOP slogans at high-traffic street corners in downtown Tampa on Tuesday.
Paul, a Texas Representative, stopped campaigning in June, but has not endorsed Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
Brett Morse drove from New York to support Ron Paul.
“I wanted to be here on the scene,” he said. “Ron Paul woke me up.”
Anaheim James, who traveled from California, considers himself a Ron Paul supporter.
“He’s the only one who wants to end wars and bring our troops home,” James said.
On Sunday, 10,000 supporters gathered at the University of South Florida Sun Dome to listen to the libertarian-leaning politician.
"I'm a social conservative," Morse said. "We have to fight for our right for free speech."
