Paul Ryan: Don't want Obama reelected? 'Then don't vote for Ron Paul'Submitted by CatalinaLovesRonPaul on Mon, 09/24/2012 - 18:48
Paul Ryan argued Monday that a vote for a third-party candidate would likely help President Obama win reelection.
Ryan was asked why voters should not vote for Ron Paul. The Republican vice presidential candidate responded that a vote for Paul, who ran for the 2012 GOP nomination, would effectively split the vote in a way that helps Obama.
"Do you want Barack Obama to be reelected? Then don't vote for Ron Paul," Ryan said during a campaign speech in Lima, Ohio, on Monday.
During a campaign event in Lima, Ohio Monday, Paul Ryan made his pitch to voters who supported Ron Paul during the Republican presidential primary, saying if they don't want a second-term Obama presidency they should back the Republican presidential ticket, not vote for Paul or third-party candidates.
