Ron Paul’s campaign has decided to end his formal quest to become the republican nominee for President of the United States. The congressman has vowed not to spend any more money campaigning in upcoming primary states. Currently he has accumulated 104 delegates, while Mitt Romney has won a total of 966. In a statement issued on his official website, Paul made it clear that he will concentrate his efforts to collect delegates at state conventions. Though this approach is unorthodox, Paul insist that his 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.”
The statement further notes: “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.”
To put it simply, Ron Paul has riled the hearts and minds of a large number of state delegates, however, they will be obligated to vote for Mitt Romney and those are the facts.
