The Paul Presidency Begins… Today!


He seemed noncomittal about the idea at CPAC, but it's about to become official: Ron Paul is running for president.

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, a strict constitutionalist and fierce anti-war critic, will formally declare his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination Monday when he appears as a guest on a C-SPAN call-in program. Paul, R-Texas, created a presidential exploratory committee in January, allowing him to begin collecting money on behalf of his bid. Kent Snyder, the chairman of that committee, said Saturday that Paul would make his candidacy official on Monday.

Yeah, I don't know why the article was written in future tense. The Campaign '08 reporters filed early to get to the Hagel "Put Me On TV '08" presser?
