From a newspaper article today:
"So far, Paul‘s national campaign has remained mum on any plans for Ohio. Spokesman Gary Howard said a few days ago in an e-mail to the Enquirer that the campaign had no one on the ground yet in the Buckeye State. "
WHY would you possibly say something like this to the media? His response should have been, "we are actively campaigning in Ohio and expect to do very well there." The campaign is giving a lot of messages of weakness, and all this does is reinforce the notion that he is not electable. No one wants to hear about the delegate strategy. That should never have been announced by the campaign. Just a really shoddy job. I don't think it's too late for the campaign to change its message, but will it happen?
It also makes me wonder what the purpose of this forum is. As far as I can tell there is no one from the campaign reading it and there are certainly no responses from anyone in the campaign.
