Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) addressed nearly 10,000 supporters at a rally in Tampa on Sunday, declaring that despite setbacks making a big mark on the upcoming Republican National Convention, his "liberty movement" is alive and well. Paul, who is retiring from Congress this year, told The New York Times on Saturday that he was offered a speaking spot at the RNC, on the conditions that Team Romney be allowed to vet his speech beforehand and that he strongly endorse Mitt Romney for president. "It wouldn't be my speech," Paul said. "That would undo everything I've done in the last 30 years. I don't fully endorse him for president." It's unclear if the Paul supporters will try to disrupt the RNC. Paul's son Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is speaking at the convention on Wednesday.
