Ron Paul Admits He Will Not Be President – Molly Ball – Politics – The Atlantic

15 May

Ron Paul announced Monday the Texas congressman will not campaign in the states that have yet to vote in the Republican primary. And while Paul insisted that the campaign would continue to amass delegates, the statement — which referred to the campaign in the past tense — appeared to be an admission that he is no longer vying for the presidential nomination.

“This campaign fought hard and won electoral success that the talking heads and pundits never thought possible,” Paul said in the statement issued Monday afternoon. “But, this campaign is also about more than just the 2012 election…. It is about the campaign for Liberty, which has taken a tremendous leap forward in this election and will continue to grow stronger in the future until we finally win.”

The campaign, Paul said, “will continue to work in the state convention process” in order to “carry a strong message to the Republican National Convention that Liberty is the way of the future. Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted.”
