Paul Spells Out Third Party Strategy: Pressure GOP to Change

Ron Paul told all Republican voters and the nation why he won't rule out a third-party run if he doesn't win the GOP presidential nomination.

"I want to put as much pressure on them as I can," Paul said at the ABC/Yahoo! News/WMUR debate at Saint Anselm College. "I'd like to see some changes."

That, succinctly, is the clearest, truest and most politically volatile answer Paul has given to the third-party run question. The issue weighs heavily in the GOP general election strategy as Paul could pull 5 percent to 6 percent or more in many swing states - possibly under-cutting GOP efforts to defeat President Obama.
