MANCHESTER, N.H. (CBS) – Ron Paul is drawing big crowds as he moves from town to town in New Hampshire.

He had to cut short a visit to a diner in Manchester because there were too many camera crews following him.

The Texas Congressman spent most of the day talking about the economy as he stumps for votes the day before the New Hampshire GOP primary. He said he would cut one trillion dollars in real spending during his first year in office.

Paul says the U.S. never should have invaded Iraq and doesn’t want the mistake repeated. He says the U.S. should not interfere with other countries, saying we wouldn’t tolerate it.

“What if the Chinese came in to the Gulf of Mexico?” Paul asked. “I know we in Texas would be pretty annoyed.”
