Ron Pauls Bid To Be Nominated As GOP President Officially Ends

By Susan Duclos

Via Fox News:

Republican Rep. Ron Paul’s bid to be nominated for president at the party’s national convention ended Saturday when he failed to win enough delegates at Nebraska’s state GOP convention.

Paul, R-Texas, won two of the state's 35 convention delegates with presumptive nominee Mitt Romney securing the rest, according to The Hill newspaper.

Paul essentially stopped campaigning months ago and has instead focused on winning delegates at state conventions to get officially nominated at the Republican National Convention next month in Tampa, Fla.

Getting enough candidates also would have allowed him to officially address convention attendees with a 15-minute nominating speech.

Ron Paul online supporters have been just as loyal as they were in 2008 but not nearly as destructive to Paul as they were in 2008.

Kudos for that.

If Paul truly believes that Barack Obama is the worst choice in 2012, then he must now convince his supporters to back Mitt Romney. If he doesn't then he is helping Obama's reelection efforts.

It is time to band together to replace Obama.
