from latimes: The “Ron Paul Revolution” isn’t over until Ron Paul says it’s over. And he’s not done yet. Amid reports that Paul would formally end his presidential campaign, the iconoclastic Texas Republican congressman instead told supporters Thursday night that he intended to lead a “Campaign for Liberty” movement to give libertarians a bigger say within the GOP.
from ap: Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will end his campaign Thursday night and announce a new effort to help elect libertarian-leaning Republican to public offices around the country.
Campaign spokesman Jessee Benton said the announcement, expected during a speech outside the Texas Republican convention, was “not a disappointment at all. I think this is really exciting.”
The 72-year-old Texas congressman won few delegates during the Republican primaries. But he raised millions of dollars online and developed a large, grass-roots following among those who backed his call for end the war in Iraq and smaller government at home.
Supporters have pushed for a speaking role for him at the Republican National Convention in September in St. Paul, Minn. Paul has said he won’t endorse Sen. John McCain, the likely GOP presidential nominee. Benton said that was unlikely to change.
