Although his son Rand has endorsed Mitt Romney, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) said Tuesday that he has no plans of doing so himself.

“Well, it looks like he has the delegates, yes,” he told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “But he doesn’t have the control of the hearts and minds of the people.

“And right now, a lot of people — a lot of delegate who are pledged to vote for Romney are actually very strong supporters of ours and will be strongly supporting us when we want to put things into the platform to say, hey, we don’t need another war,” Paul continued. “Yes, we do need to audit the Federal Reserve. Yes, we ought to really cut spending.”

“I take it you’re not yet ready yourself to endorse Romney, are you?” Blitzer asked.

“No, not really,” Paul responded. “No way.”
