CNN host Piers Morgan on Monday night asked Texas Rep. Ron Paul why he was still in the Republican presidential race when his situation seemed “terminal.”

He noted that Paul had obtained only 71 delegates, far behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.

But Paul fired back, saying it was “way too soon” for Morgan “to write anybody off.”

“What if Mitt Romney isn’t the best person? Why should we just throw in the towel?” he continued.

Paul said people didn’t like the fact that he brought up concerns like war, the Federal Reserve system, and civil liberties.
