Paul says his campaign’s momentum will continue
Brushing off his poor last place finish in the South Carolina primary Saturday, Republican Ron Paul promised supporters the momentum around his libertarian-leaning campaign would continue.
“This is the beginning of a long, hard job,” the Texas congressman told fans gathered at a sports bar in Columbia, the state capital.
Paul vowed to battle on in states holding caucuses over the next several weeks, saying the fight now is to amass delegates rather than to notch splashy wins.
“We will be promoting the whole idea of getting more delegates, because that’s the name of the game,” Paul said.
