Ron Paul, who is projected to take second place in the New Hampshire primary, spoke to an audience at his campaign headquarters shortly after Mitt Romney made his victory speech. Mr. Paul criticized the media and political establishment for “ignoring” his campaign, but assured his supporters they’ll still succeed in their quest to “restore freedom to this country.”
“I called Governor Romney a short while ago before he gave his talk and congratulated him, because he certainly had a clear cut victory, but we’re nibbling at his heels!” Mr. Paul said. Mr. Paul began his speech by thanking his staff and supporters. He also gave a sarcastic acknowledgment to the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper, which endorsed his rival Jon Huntsman.
“There was one other acknowledgment I wanted to make, I wanted to thank the Union Leader for not endorsing me,” Mr. Paul said.
