Father, Son, Which One Will Run?
By Fred Lucas on 4.15.11
Donald Trump was wrong when he said Ron Paul "has just zero chance of getting elected." When the buzz about Trump's presidential campaign dies down, it's quite possible that Ron Paul -- if he runs in 2012 -- would outperform Trump in the long run.
While he does not have a good chance of getting elected, it's better than zero. The Texas Congressman gained a higher delegate count than heavyweights like Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson in the 2008 Republican primary. He placed second in Idaho, Indiana, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania and South Dakota. As for experience in "getting elected," Paul has won 12 terms to the House of Representatives, three of those times as a non-incumbent.
