I wouldn't blame him if he just didn't take a stance on the governor's race. I'm sure Debra has most of Ron Paul's supporters anyway and she wouldn't want to lose any "lemming" Republicans that don't appreciate Ron's views. He may endorse her yet. He did endorse a non-Republican for president.

Seems weird. It might be about his Liberty PAC and him not endorsing her. He does not endorse any candidates does he. He has not endorsed Schiff of Rand, just says good things about them.

But why the word play on support.

It does not look like Debra used endorse, just support.

Kokesh is running against an incumbent Dem. Ron Paul just doesn't endorse people whom are running against an incumbent Republican.

Kokesh is running against an incumbent Dem. Ron Paul just doesn't endorse people whom are running against an incumbent Republican.

I think it's more to do with him not supporting anyone with Republican opposition.

Because Schiff isn't running against a Republican incumbent, so why hasn't Ron endorsed him yet? Adam, on the other hand, has no Republican opposition (that I am aware of), and he's been endorsed..

Regardless, Paul's neutrality is smart positioning, considering that he has a race of his own in 2010.

She doesn't have much name recognition yet. She does with the tea partiers and those who actively watch politics sure. But what about the ones who don't go to tea parties 24/7?

They will be susceptible to the Perry spin. She hasn't yet been able to get her voice out to all the libertarians in Texas.

Go and look at her calendar....It's quite impressive.

Hello... he didn't endorse her because he knows she has no chance to win and doesn't want to encourage grassroots supporters to donate to her and work for her when they could do that for candidates much more likely to win, such as Rand, Kokesh, or Schiff.

It's way too early to be endorsing anyone. How many of us were talking about Sanford as a Liberty candidate not too long ago? While I don't like seeing RP playing politics as usual I understand why he's not endorsing anyone....yet.

I don't think he can endorse anyone who is going up against a Republican incumbent, or he risks losing his position as chair of any Congressional committees that he now holds. At least, that is what I recall.

RP chairs a Congressional committee? That's news to me if true.

That's not possible in a Dem controlled Congress.

Is Larry Kilgore still in the race?
