Congressman to make decision within six months
Thursday, Nov 20, 2008
Rumours of a Ron Paul 2012 presidential run have already begun to surface after the Congressman’s communications manager and grandson-in-law Jesse Benton dropped hints with Reason’s David Weigel recently.
“He hasn’t closed out the idea of another run,” said Benton today. “We have some time to decide whether he runs again, or whether he gets behind somebody else. But we don’t have tons of time. By the middle of 2009, the decision needs to be made.”
According to Benton, Paul would most likely run as a Republican again if he decided to enter the race one more time. Benton commented:
“To be frank, I got tired of the ‘third party’ question getting asked time after time, and I know that Ron did too.”
