The Las Vegas-based Clarke County Republican Party in Nevada is sponsoring a billboard warning that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney would be a disaster for the country like George W. Bush.
The Las Vegas Sun’s Jon Ralston posted an photo of the billboard on Monday, which also compares Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) to President Ronald Reagan.
The billboard goes on to advertise OathKeepers.org, a libertarian website.
“The message is unmistakable: Ron Paul is like Ronald Reagan and Mitt Romney is like George W. Bush,” Ralston wrote. “The latter is not meant kindly, I assure you.”
“I swear, folks: The Republicans here are better than any act on the Strip. It is not even close,” he added.
Last month, the Republican National Committee warned Nevada Republicans that they could be blocked from the Republican National Convention later this year if they sent too many delegates supporting Paul.
Republicans who worry that Paul supporters have taken over the state and county parties have set up independent in-state groups to perform normal Republican Party functions like getting out the vote for Romney.
