Ron Paul suspends active campaigning

“This campaign is about more than just the 2012 election.”

Texas congressman Ron Paul announced his campaign would “no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted” on Monday, effectively suspending his presidential campaign. 

He still intends to appear at the Republican National Convention in Tampa with the 104 delegates he has won so far, and keep working to secure delegates.  “Our campaign will continue to work in the state convention process.  We will continue to take leadership positions, win delegates, and carry a strong message to the Republican National Convention that Liberty is the way of the future,” Paul’s statement reads.

“This campaign fought hard and won electoral success that the talking heads and pundits never thought possible,” said Paul.  “But, this campaign is also about more than just the 2012 election.  It has been part of a quest I began 40 years ago and that so many have joined.  It is about the campaign for Liberty, which has taken a tremendous leap forward in this election and will continue to grow stronger in the future until we finally win.”

He concluded by hoping that “all supporters of Liberty will remain deeply involved – become delegates, win office, and take leadership positions,” and promising, “I will be right there with you.”
