There's no doubt about it. Ron Paul is cheap.
When Republican rival Rick Perry stayed in Council Bluffs, Iowa, his campaign paid a $1,204 tab at the Hilton Gardens Inn. When Ron Paul visited, he spent $64.38 at a Super 8 motel.
The Texas congressman's campaign disclosure report shows he knows a bargain when he sees it: He shopped at Walmart, The Dollar Tree, Subway and Casey's General Store. His favorite restaurant: McDonald's, which appeared in expenses more than 40 times.
With just a few bills from expensive catering companies, Paul's campaign opted for pizza, and lots of it. From Pizza Hut to Domino's to even Godfather's, the campaign was billed for pizza more than 70 times.
His smallest bill? A $1 purchase from Salvation Army. A suit, maybe?
