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.”

‘I’m a nurse, what are you?’: Tennessee lawmaker humiliates anti-choice activists in brutal public grilling
Anti-choice activists in Tennessee were unprepared for the grilling they got from a Democratic Party lawmaker when making the case for a bill that would outlaw abortion before many women knew they were pregnant.
One of the speakers in favor of the fetal heartbeat bill was Baptist Pastor Randy Davis, who was questioned by state Sen. Katrina Robinson (D-Memphis).
"How many women executive pastors do you have in your convention?" Robinson asked Davis. "Or senior pastors."
"None," Davis replied.
"So is it the same ideology that restricts access to women being able to lead a congregation that leads you all to support women not being able to make a medical decision about their body?" Robinson asked.
Trump unlikely to ask Democrats for help with recession, says analyst: ‘I’d also like a unicorn for my birthday’
On Saturday, The New York Times examined what it might look like if President Donald Trump has to deal with a recession in 2020.
One of the grim takeaways was that Trump would likely be incapable of digging America out of the hole he had created — because he would be unable to overcome political rivalries to do so.
"You could get a widespread fiscal response to a recession," said Harvard Kennedy School senior fellow Megan Greene. "That would be really nice, but I'd also like a unicorn for my birthday."
