Ron Paul draws capacity crowd in Md.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Texas Rep. Ron Paul has drawn a capacity crowd at the University of Maryland, College Park's Ritchie Coliseum.
 
   Paul, who is seeking the GOP's nomination to challenge President Barack Obama, is set to speak Wednesday evening.
 
   Roughly 1,500 people were inside the venue. Scores of students lined up outside were turned away.
 
   Supporters chanted "President Paul" before the congressman spoke.
 
   Paul is in last place in delegates of the four candidates who are still in the race for the GOP nomination.
 
   Maryland is drawing candidates this week, because the state's primary will be on April 3.
 
   Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was in Annapolis on Tuesday. Mitt Romney was in Arbutus last week.
