Still Winless, Upbeat Ron Paul Vows to Keep Picking Up DelegatesSubmitted by bobbyw24 on Wed, 02/29/2012 - 07:48
Ron Paul may not have been a major player in tonight’s primaries in Michigan and Arizona, but he promised to continue to be noisy in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.
The congressman, speaking at a boisterous rally in Springfield, Va., addressed the fact that his campaign continues to be winless at 0-11.
“Everyone keeps asking me about winning states,” said Paul. “We are winning delegates, and that’s what counts.”
Afterwards in an interview with CNN, the Texas congressman was more candid, saying that he wished he could have done a lot better tonight, but that he is proud of the strong support he continues to receive — especially from young people.
Paul was introduced by his son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who joked that he’s only there for a short time while the Transportation Safety Administration let him out.
