STATE COLUMN | March 13, 2012
"I’m sure you heard them gleefully talk about which establishment candidate “won” which primary or caucus Tuesday night, if you were even watching. Most Americans thankfully had more sense and switched on something else,” write Mr. Paul. “The fact is, just like in many of the earlier contests, very few delegates to the Republican National Convention were decided on Tuesday. Most will be decided several weeks, or even months, from now at District and State conventions – conventions where our local delegates will have a big say in who goes to Tampa.”
“In fact, while I didn’t win any state’s straw polls, my team expects me to win a plurality of delegates in at least three states, as well as outright majorities in two more of the states that have already started their process,” the Texas Republican added.
The statement condemning the media’s coverage of this year’s election results is the not the first time Mr. Paul expressed discontent. The Texas Republican, along with his supporters, have often alleged a media bias.
While the Texas Republican has yet to win a single primary or caucus, and he trails in the delegate count to two other underdogs, he told supporters that he will continue his campaign, irregardless of whether he has the necessary delegate count to stop former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney from securing the Republican nomination.
“I am vowing to you today that I will keep fighting. I will fight in every convention and every place where delegates will be selected. I will fight until there is a clear winner – not because the media says that’s the end, but because the nomination has been clinched,” said Mr. Paul.
