Longtime RLC Advisory Board member and past Honorary Chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus Dr. Ron Paul announced that he has formed an exploratory committee, the first step in his formal process of seeking the Republican Party nomination in 2012.
On Monday, the soft-spoken country doctor appeared on ABC’s “The View” as well as “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central.
On Tuesday, he formally announced his exploratory committee and released his Iowa campaign team’s leadership. The news received widespread mention in the press, including the Des Moines Register and the Boston Globe, Politico, FOX News, USA Today, Washington Examiner, and Huffington Post, among many other publications.
Here, Congressman Paul talks about the race on CNN’s morning program, earlier this morning.
Congressman Paul was the Honorary Chairman of the RLC for one term, 1995-1996. He is known for his pro-liberty positions on the issues confronting our country.
The RLC has not endorsed any Presidential candidates since Steve Forbes in 1996. We let our members decide who they want to support and only formally endorse a candidate if our chartered state affiliates unanimously agree on a candidate to endorse.
