Ron Paul says he’s not going to campaign in any more primaries:
“Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted,” Mr. Paul said. “Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have.”
He did encourage his supporters to still turn out and vote.
His decision not to compete for new votes in other states leaves Mr. Romney as the only candidate still actively fighting for voters’ support in the 11 states still to vote. That list includes the biggest prizes on the board — Texas and California.
It’s interesting that Ron Paul supporters are saying he hasn’t given up, he’s just not campaigning and the convention will be the key to victory:
“Stop overreacting,” wrote a commenter at ronpaulforums.com, the online hub for Paul supporters. “It’s always been a delegate strategy, and this changes nothing, when the media was going to black out any campagining he did anyway.” The commenter has written hundreds of posts on the forum under the name TheGrinchWhoStoleDC.
There might be something to this. If you weren’t going to vote for Ron Paul by now, his campaigning in your state wouldn’t change that. And if you were, you still are.
