Next to what -- south Carolina's top Republicans on the one guy he says can -- President Obama and it's not just probably damage Ron Ball State senator Tom Davis was right now on the endorsement that carries.
Considerable awaiting tests say in that state on this so obviously senator you've made this move.
Regardless of how things look in the polls for the time being.
Well I mean to me it's not about politics.
-- is about endorsing the person that most accurately reflects what you think is wrong with this country -- is talking that the issues that are wrong -- this country and I think that's Ron -- And South Carolina is a very interesting demographic you had -- social conservatives.
On who essentially are appealing are you know Mitt Romney is I'm sorry Rick Santorum appeals to them.
Mitt Romney is as more or less appealing to the establishment candidate.
As it that's that's -- -- -- -- overlooking is that sap nor has -- very strong Tea Party movement had very strong pro liberty.
Pro freedom movement.
And that particular constituency I think is one of Ron Paul can appeal -- I've been all over the state I've heard what citizens are concerned about.
They're afraid of too much spending they're afraid too much dependence upon state run health care and they really -- government picking winners and losers in the marketplace.
The one candidate that's talking about that clearer and more forces than any other -- Paul and I think he's got a great shot that -- Onset of we're discernible flow we have it shows it has certainly -- suppose not doing -- -- here but.
That vote if you wanna call -- the conservative voter covered folks define it.
Is divided now by the likes of former speaker Gingrich and Governor Perry and then senator Santorum.
Do you agree as do others that that that you've got to coalesce -- that is conservatives have to coalesce.
Around a single candidate.
It's it's activated from the other -- business gotta be Ron Paul it's gotta be anyone to be about.
Without that it's just sort of opening the -- floor for Mitt Romney -- Well I think really is where conservative you have to be a little bit more specific you have social conservatives certainly that I think.
But then you also have limited government fiscal conservatives and I think that's the vote that's really in play here.
I mean look for years ago when Ron Paul ran for president he had about 3% of the vote.
This time around he's scoring 6789.
Times higher than that depending upon what -- you're looking at if there is a very strong demographic out there that is based government -- too much spends too much.
-- way too much for liberty and one person is speaking to that.
It is starting to resonate and that's why what you're gonna see in the next coming days.
Are the most that's the conservative senators in the -- -- senate are going to be coming out endorsing Ron Paul.
Not just me -- came out yesterday but there is gonna get there are going to be more coming out tomorrow because.
What they recognizes.
Innovative more apparent argue perhaps start I mean are over -- -- -- that had at.
Well at least at least three senators that I know that I spoke to today you have 100% rating -- on fiscal score -- they -- the most.
They're going to -- but they're not for Ron -- has not been wrong -- -- for Ron Paul.
Don't get so -- probably -- -- you -- Anderson but -- Mitt Romney were to somehow still take South Carolina.
Ultimately go to the nomination and are gonna sit this out -- supported.
Now I if that's not what this is about I mean obviously what you wanna do next fall next November as you wanna have -- the -- a one term president so.
So that's not the debate here the debate here really is who is the strongest candidate -- -- we put forward.
That is truly a fiscal conservative.
I'm tired of all the rhetoric from part of individuals say they're gonna cut spending they're gonna get government out of our lives.
When they have a record when they're in power do a -- in the opposite.
Getting government allies you know creating spending I'm tired other rhetoric like that -- song says.
I'm not gonna be fought again I'm not gonna get -- -- isn't right I'm gonna go with the guy that I know.
As a record that supports that.
I think what made your appearance especially meaningful as that who reference senator thank you very very much.
Very good having -- yeah.
