Ron Paul Rising
Upward from 2008

Three summers ago, Rep. Ron Paul, a white-haired obstetrician, shocked the political world.

The septuagenarian Texan, out of nowhere, stirred an army of youthful libertarians and disillusioned Republicans to support his long-shot presidential bid. He raised millions, rallied thousands, and spooked GOP contenders. But he did not win a primary.
