Ron Paul Did Not Drop Out Of The Presidential Race, Contrary To Reports
Written by @TrillChris for FACETHEPOLITICS.COM
The mainstream media has been abuzz with rumors of Ron Paul suspending his presidential campaign and dropping out of the race for the White House.
The rumors come on the heels of a letter sent out via e-mail from Paul to his supporters today – stating that he plans to end spending on campaigning in the remaining primary states, but made no mention of dropping out.
“Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted. Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have. I encourage all supporters of Liberty to make sure you get to the polls and make your voices heard, particularly in the local, state, and Congressional elections, where so many defenders of Freedom are fighting and need your support.”
The mainstream media, who have shown blatant disregard to the legitimacy of his candidacy during this race, were quick to post headlines stating that Mr. Paul had dropped out, with titles like “What’s Next For Ron Paul?”.
According to Paul, his strategy is only shifting from campaigning to focusing on the remaining state conventions where he has been winning the hard-fought battle of securing delegates.
“Our campaign will continue to work in the state convention process. We will continue to take leadership positions, win delegates, and carry a strong message to the Republican National Convention that Liberty is the way of the future….I hope all supporters of Liberty will remain deeply involved – become delegates, win office, and take leadership positions. I will be right there with you. In the coming days, my campaign leadership will lay out to you our delegate strategy and what you can do to help, so please stay tuned.”
We are unsure how this will effect the vote in the upcoming primary states like Texas, who started their early voting today. But make no mistake, there is still a two person race between Mitt Romney and Ron Paul in the GOP.
