Paul Insists He Will Not Withdraw From Presidential Race

Sen. Rand Paul, during an appearance on CNN, denied that he will soon join Scott Walker and Jeb Bush in dropping out of the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

Breitbart News reported that the Kentucky lawmaker was responding to a tweet by the front-running GOP candidate, Donald Trump. “Prediction: Rand Paul has been driven out of the race by my statements about him,” the New York businessman wrote. “He will announce soon.”

In a second message on Twitter, Trump declared: “I hope when Rand Paul gets out of the race … his supporters come over to me. I will do a much better job for them.”

Paul, who called the billionaire a “clown,” told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer it is “silly season any time Donald Trump opens his mouth.” Later in the interview, he claimed his rival is “not a real conservative (because) no real conservative would have supported a single-payer system for medical or health care, no real conservative would support raising taxes, and no real conservative would have supported President Obama’s government stimulus plan.”

According to RealClearPolitics, which calculates the average of all national surveys, Paul trails nine other GOP candidates with only 2.4 percent support. Trump, at 23.4 percent, continues to lead the field.
