Ron Paul Campaign Statement on Beating Giuliani and Thompson… Again

Kent Snyder, chairman of the Ron Paul 2008 Republican presidential campaign issued the following statement in response to the results of the Michigan primary:

“After beating Rudy Giuliani in Iowa, and Fred Thompson in New Hampshire, Ron Paul has now bested both ‘national frontrunners’ in Michigan, and in the three races held thus far Paul has received over 30,000 votes more than either of the candidates.

“If I had predicted that result when this campaign started almost twelve months ago, I would have been laughed out of the room by the so-called experts. Currently there is no frontrunner and this race is wide open.

“In Michigan, Dr. Paul’s message resonated with voters because he discusses issues that nobody else will even acknowledge. Dr. Paul is the foremost expert on monetary policy, and he truly understands the crunch that Americans are feeling due to high taxes and high inflation that drives up gas prices and mortgage payments.”

Below are the combined vote totals for Iowa, New Hampshire and Michigan:

Romney - 443,139 Total Votes

McCain - 361,546 Total Votes

Huckabee - 207,308 Total Votes

Paul - 84,554 Total Votes

Giuliani - 50,925 Total Votes

Thompson - 49,198 Total Votes

Hunter - 4,567 Total Votes
