Hold on! Ron Paul did NOT quit the GOP presidential race (Analysis)
Throughout the afternoon and evening yesterday news reports flashed all over the internet that Republican Rep. Ron Paul was going to officialy end his hopeless presidential campaign.
ABC News said the campaign, "a pugnacious, ideological crusade against big government and interventionist leanings in the Republican party, will officially end Thursday at a rally outside the Texas GOP's convention."
A European wire service that we won't identify (we'll call it AFP) said: "Maverick Republican White House candidate Ron Paul, a rival to his party's presumptive nominee John McCain, announced late Thursday he is dropping out of the US presidential race."
A certain Washington blog about the campaign Trail reported last night: "Texas Rep. Ron Paul, is officially ending his presidential campaign." Even keen observer and enthusiastic Ron Paul supporter Lew Rockwell appeared to give up hope.
But just you wait one Texas minute! We know better than that here at The Ticket.
Once before, three months ago, Paul put out a video message to his hundreds of thousands of supporters saying he was "winding down" his campaign.
