Skip to comments.Ron Paul says he won't quit race

GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul, on a three-day campaign swing in California that has attracted overflow crowds, said Thursday his withdrawal from the race is "not going to happen" - and he isn't certain he'll support Mitt Romney should the former Massachusetts governor win the party's nomination.
The Texas congressman, in a meeting with The Chronicle's editorial board, said there may be some "excitement" ahead, including the possibility of a "brokered" convention.
Paul, asked whether he would back Romney if he secures the 1,144 delegates needed to win the Republican nomination, said, "We haven't gotten that far yet. I have no plans to say no or yes."
Paul also left open the door - at least a crack - to declare himself an independent presidential candidate. Asked if he had ruled it out, Paul said, "I have my hands full right now." He added: "I'm in the middle of a process and I want to find out how many delegates we have and whether there's going to be a brokered convention."

I’d forgotten he was still in.
Useless old f#%t. In my opinion, he’s in this for his own personal satisfaction. Period.
Here's to ya Newt and Paul, I'm 100% behind you for the roof raising!!
Paul should run on a separate party line. He does not belong in the other two nor are his issues wanted by either. He should test the waters rather than being ignored. Time for him to sink or swim.
Who? (He must be making a mint.)
Paul is a Libertarian, not a conservative or a Republican. He is simply using the GOP label because he knows as a Libertarian no one would pay any attention to him. I'd also like him to quit the GOP. I disagree with conventional wisdom that as an independent he'd hurt the Republican nominee. I think he'd pull more drug addled college peacenik types from Obama than he would right of center voters from the Republican candidate. Pretty much every paulbot I knew/know from 2008 ended up voting for Obama because Paul is not on the ballot.
Why wouldn’t RP support the final pick for ‘12 Libertarian Party POTUS? Where’s the surprise?
In fact, he's PROUD to be a white man. Always has been...
...and he won't quit his gender either.
