RON PAUL OUT – Will Not Compete in Remaining States

The doctor is out.

A day after his lackeys booed Josh Romney off the stage in Arizona, Rep. Ron Paul announced that he will not compete in any remaining states in the GOP primary.
The Washington Times reported:

Rep. Ron Paul of Texas said Monday he will not compete in primaries in any of the states that have not yet voted — essentially confirming Mitt Romney will win the Republican presidential nomination.

Mr. Paul said he will continue to work to win delegates in states that have already voted and where the process of delegate-selection is playing out. He said that’s a way to make his voice heard at the Republican nominating convention in Tampa, Fla., in August.

“Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted,” Mr. Paul said. “Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have.”

He did encourage his supporters to still turn out and vote.

His decision not to compete for new votes in other states leaves Mr. Romney as the only candidate still actively fighting for voters’ support in the 11 states still to vote. That list includes the biggest prizes on the board — Texas and California.

The Ron Paul website has not posted the news.

Of course, the Ron Paulians have already disputed this breaking news.

    And he was so close to victory!

    Look at all those states he won that are now disenfranchised.

    The PaulNuts will never give up without making a show at the convention. Why wasn’t he wearing his tinfoil hat?

  • Pleasance

    Per CNN Ron Paul has a grand total of 82 delegates. Romney has 919.

    A fine test of Romney’s leadership skills. Obama bought Dennis Kucinich’s yes vote for Obamacare with a joy ride on Airforce One. Dennis and Ron are of the same wave length. All Mitt needed to do was offer Ron a little attention. Maybe ease up on the drug war…. A promise to fire Ben Bernakie . If Mitt couldn’t reach a deal , his competancy would be in doubt.

    The rabid Paultards over at the Daily Paul are going crazy as we speak. They simply refuse to believe the campaign is over and they say Ron Paul is simply using a different “strategy”. I guess they haven’t factored in the massive amount of delegates Romney will get in Texas and California. I can only keep laughing. The cult of Paul never quits!

    I still remember his followers were going to create a “Paulville”, where they could live “off grid.”. They are already way way off the grid.

    So the tinfoil hat wearing Paulbots are going to try and engage in shenanigans and in procedural moves to create division at the Republican convention. If Paul had any class whatsoever, he would tell his minions to stand down. This is not helpful. This is all about Ron Paul’s ego now and it’s destructive. If we get another 4 years of Barack Obama, the blame will be laid at his feet and he will become the most hated man in America.

    The Ron Paul fight is NOT over you numbskulls! His message has already spread. The fight for delegates is not just going to die because he’s not campaigning for “beauty contests”… You just watch when the news gets out that he won AZ & OK… google the delegate count! RP is gaining FAST!!

    Per CNN Ron Paul has a grand total of 82 delegates. Romney has 919.

    Ron Paul and his ilk would prefer to destroy Ronmey than to defeat Obama. Telling them to grow up is wasted – his followers are brain addled by and rabid for their marijuana.

    Finally. And those Paulbots had the gall to shout down Josh Romney the other day.
    With malice aforethought, he’ll probably start a 3rd party run just to try to get Comrade Hussein “re-elected”.

    Mitt needs a positively huge margin to cover any shenanigans pulled by Paul and Hussein.

    Don’t you guys know anything? Paul and his delegates are going to march on Tampa and take the nomination by storm (or something like that)!

    They really do think they are going to be able to steal the nomination though. My question would be, if you are somehow successful in stealing the nomination, why would you think the majority of republicans would come out and vote for a guy who can only garner about 7% of the votes in any given state primary?

  • Kaitian


    He won 2 delegates permanently from Arizona. I’m confused how that will change considering the rules of that state based on proportional assignment which it wasn’t a convention or caucus. Especially the large number of turnouts for Romney were from the large Mormon population that already voted overwhelmingly for Romney in the Republican Primary. Are you basically saying that you’re okay with disenfranchising the voters? As for the Oklahoma Primary, Ron Paul is still a zero there with the same rules as AZ.
