Paul Refused to Endorse Romney

Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) told the New York Times that GOP convention planners had offered him an opportunity to speak before delegates under two conditions: that he deliver remarks vetted by the Romney campaign, and that he give a full-fledged endorsement of Mr. Romney. He declined.

Said Paul: "It wouldn't be my speech. That would undo everything I've done in the last 30 years. I don't fully endorse him for president."

Charles Mahtesian: "Paul's refusal to play ball stands in contrast to his son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who at some personal political cost has endorsed Mitt Romney's bid -- and has a speaking slot."
