LAKE JACKSON, Texas (AP) — When Republican congressional hopeful Randy Weber knocks on doors in Ron Paul's hometown and says he'd like to take "Dr. No's" place in Washington, he offers a caveat.

Weber, 58, is one of nine Republicans vying for the party's nomination in Paul's congressional district, which includes Lake Jackson, where the 76-year-old Paul delivered hundreds of babies as an obstetrician, sends out holiday cookbooks with his wife Carol, and goes jogging or biking along Oyster Creek Drive.
