Former Obama backers now supporting Ron Paul

• By Elizabeth Hunter

William Knight is 26, lives in Seattle and voted for Barack Obama in 2008. In demography and geography, he embodied the Obama youth movement.

Now, as Washington Republicans hold their presidential caucuses on Saturday, Wright has a new political hero: Ron Paul.
He's among a group of voters nationwide who went for Obama four years ago and now support Paul. They've been dubbed Blue Republicans by organizer and blogger Robin Koerner, of Seattle, who also backs the Texas congressman.
