Three New Hampshire newspapers endorsed Ron Paul for President on Wednesday, the Texas congressman’s campaign headquarters said in a press statement.
“Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has been in the lead for months,” wrote one of the op-eds, “but voters still seem desperate for an alternative. There’s always another candidate pulling stronger or almost as strong numbers in the polls. Voters have lost faith in Obama, but they are not sold on Romney to replace him. Congressman Ron Paul, however, has never voted to raise a tax and voted against all of the bailouts that have riled up Tea Partiers and Occupy Wall Streeters alike,” editors at these papers said. The three dailies are all owned by the same company, Salmon Press Newspapers out of Meredith, NH.
The 12-term Congressman is currently in New Hampshire for the Republican Primaries, which take place on Tuesday Jan. 10.Ron Paul was in a tie with the 2 other big government BORG agents otherwise known as Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, in the Iowa presidential caucus. All 3 candidates received 6 delegates. Ron Paul received double the number of votes in the same contest as he did in 2008.
