Following Rick Santorum's sudden departure from the Republican primaries earlier this afternoon, the campaign of Ron Paul who, oh yeah, is, I guess, still running for president, or so it would seem, released a statement declaring that the Texas congressperson has no intention of following suit…
"Congratulations to Senator Santorum on running such a spirited campaign. Dr. Paul is now the last — and real — conservative alternative to Mitt Romney," Jesse Benton, Paul's campaign chairman, said in a statement…
"We plan to continue running hard, secure delegates, and press the fight for limited, constitutional government in Tampa," Benton said.
This actually makes absolutely perfect sense. Ron Paul has absolutely zero percent chance, even by the most hopeful of statistical models, of beating Mitt Romney.
So, there is no change.
