Rep. Ron Paul said he will not give up his presidential campaign as long as crowds come to hear his message. But he did rule out a Romney-Paul ticket.
“There’s no way I’m going to quit speaking out on this,” he said.
“The truth is, I’m trying to save the Republican Party from themselves,” argued Paul, who badly trails Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in delegates and popular support. “Because they want perpetual war, they don’t care about presidents who assassinate American citizens, they don’t’ care about searching our houses without search warrants.”
Paul rejected being a running mate to Mitt Romney. “I haven’t said anything like that and I don’t see how that would happen. There’s too many disagreements…I’d have a hard time to expect him ever to invite me to campaign for him.”
He also has not decided whether to endorse Mitt Romney, should the former Massachusetts governor win the nomination.
Paul restated that he has no plans for a third-party candidacy after the Republican National Convention should he lose the nomination, but did not rule it out.
