CNBC: Ron Paul Vows to Continue Campaign Against Status QuoSubmitted by Barracuda_Trader on Tue, 05/01/2012 - 08:51
Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, faced with a daunting delegate disadvantage and dwindling media attention, nevertheless plans on continuing his campaign to try to change the way Washington operates.
With Mitt Romney considered by many observers to be the presumptive GOP nominee, Paul said he maintains a strong base of supporters who are tired of not having their voices heard. Only Paul, Romney, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia remain in a once-crowded race.
"We're challenging the status quo of the entire country as well as the Republican Party," Paul said during an interview on CNBC's "Squawk Box." "People don't like to give up their power. But the momentum is very powerful. I'm part of it, but I'm not it. It's much bigger than me."
