Ron Paul suspends presidential campaign
Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will no longer campaign in primary states that have not yet voted.
Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will no longer campaign in primary states that have not yet voted, he said this week. But the iconoclastic Texas congressman urged his supporters to continue organizing in states that have already held their primaries or caucuses, in order to win delegates to the Republican convention in August. To campaign in the 11 remaining states, said Paul, “would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have.” But by working the byzantine delegate selection process, Paul’s campaign hopes to arrive in Tampa with enough troops to “show that our people are here, and we’re the wave of the future,” said campaign chairman Jesse Benton.
