Ron Paul refuses to speak at RNC to avoid endorsing RomneySubmitted by richybear on Tue, 08/28/2012 - 14:59
Since Paul finished second to Romney in the New Hampshire primary, he is not able to address the convention. But the Romney campaign offered him an opportunity to give a speech – as long as it was approved by Romney’s staff and endorses the Republican nominee for president.
Paul rejected the offer on the basis that it wouldn’t align with his beliefs.
“It wouldn’t be my speech,” he said in an interview with the New York Times. “That would undo everything I’ve done in the last 30 years. I don’t fully endorse him for president.”
