COMMENTARY | Dr. Ron Paul officially announced his candidacy Friday for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. A definite dark horse, the libertarian-leaning candidate does have his
supporters. In a time of economic uncertainty, his smaller government, low-tax and low-spend message resonates with voters. A physician by trade, Paul has served in Congress since 1997. Prior to that time, he was in practice as an OB/GYN in Texas. He also served in Congress in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
What makes Paul think he can win the nomination in 2012? He does have some distinct advantages working in his favor.
