The Ron Paul Effect

by Robert Costa

The Texas congressman argues that the GOP is moving toward him:

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) said Sunday that he knows that his 2008 presidential campaign was regarded in many quarters as a joke, but that no one is treating him that way now as he embarks on another bid for the White House.

“During the last campaign I knew what was happening. You know, they mocked me for my foreign policy and they laughed at my monetary policy,” Paul said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“No more. No more. The people [are] coming over here,” Paul said.
