In the wake of his son’s endorsement of the presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, many have wondered whether or not the elder Paul will fall in line and compromise his principles to back Romney. Well Ron Paul has put those concerns to rest. On CNN’s Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer Paul stated that despite Rand Paul’s endorsement of Romney, he would not be following suit for the former governor of Massachusetts.
“Well, it looks like he has the delegates, yes,” Paul told Blitzer. “But he doesn’t have the control of the hearts and the minds of the people. And right now a lot of people — a lot of delegates who are pledged to vote for Romney are actually very strong supporters of ours and will be strongly supporting us when we want to put things into the platform that say, hey, we don’t need another war. Yes, we do need to audit the Federal Reserve. Yes, we ought to really cut spending.”
