Rand Paul Pledges to ‘Un-Suspend’ Campaign If NH Paper Endorses Him
In a strange twist of events, Rand Paul has agreed to un-suspend his presidential campaign if the New Hampshire Union endorses him.
If they endorse me and declare a Do Over in New Hampshire I will un-suspend
The Hill reports:
The paper, which endorsed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in the New Hampshire primary, retracted its endorsement of the former candidate on Monday night after Christie endorsed front-runner Donald Trump last week.The paper wrote in an editorial that it has made a bad decision with its endorsement of Christie. It slammed Christie’s decision to endorse Trump, saying the governor said he never would back the real estate mogul.
“Watching Christie kiss the Donald’s ring this weekend — and make excuses for the man Christie himself had said was unfit for the presidency — demonstrated how wrong we were,” the editorial said.
Paul dropped out of the presidential race after a disappointing finish in the Iowa caucuses. Christie suspended his campaign following the New Hampshire primary.
