Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) on Thursday appointed Michael Vasovski, a former candidate for the House who lost his primary contest to Tea Party freshman Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.), as chairman of his South Carolina campaign.
Vasovski, like Paul, is a longtime doctor, and founded a free medical clinic in Aiken, S.C.
“As a sole medical practitioner, I am also a small business owner, and know full well the burdens placed on small businesses by the federal government,” Vasovski said in a news release. “Dr. Paul is the only presidential candidate with a serious plan to reduce such regulations and cut $1 trillion from the federal budget in his first year in office. I am honored to support Ron Paul’s campaign for the Republican nomination.”
