Ron Paul Still Playing the Delegate Game

Rep. Ron Paul is still playing the delegate game going into Tuesday's four Republican contests, despite his last-place standing in the GOP field.

Speaking on CNBC, the Texas congressman said that he is upsetting the status quo in Washington with his support from younger and independent voters, and repeated his now-familiar criticism of foreign intervention, the Federal Reserve and entitlement spending.


Paul also addressed rumors that surfaced weeks ago he and Mitt Romney had an alliance. “Some people are more into conspiracies than I am,” he said.

Paul said he was worried that the GOP could lose the election to President Obama, and that he would support the Republican ticket if he does not become the nominee—but perhaps not “wholeheartedly,” as a CNBC host suggested.

“Wholehearted?” he said. “I would probably have to reassess that.”
