What Happened the Last Time the GOP Asked Him?

June 15, 2012

Here’s what Ron Paul said in 2008 when the McCain camp called

Before election day in 2008, Ron Paul held a press conference in DC, featuring the third party candidates for president; Ralph Nader (Green), Chuck Baldwin (Constitution) and, in absentia, Bob Barr (Libertarian). Ron urged his supporters, as well as all who were frustrated and fed-up with the two-party monopoly to vote for anyone of the third party contenders, rather than the lesser of two evils.

In this video, he recounts the story of what happened when the McCain campaign called asking for Ron’s endorsement. He said: “Well, I don’t like the idea of getting two or three million people angry at me”. The McCain people countered with the argument that he would do less harm than the others. Needless to say, Ron said NO.

As Lew said recently: “We have no worries about Ron Paul sticking to his principles”. (10:21)
