So today the Mainstream Media took things to a new level. The Ron Paul 2012 campaign put out a statement this morning here:
Here is the excerpt from Ron Paul from the above Press release:
“As I reflect on our 2012 Presidential campaign, I am humbled by the supporters who have worked so hard and sacrificed so much. And I am so proud of what we have accomplished. We will not stop until we have restored what once made America the greatest country in human history.
“This campaign fought hard and won electoral success that the talking heads and pundits never thought possible. But, this campaign is also about more than just the 2012 election. It has been part of a quest I began 40 years ago and that so many have joined. It is about the campaign for Liberty, which has taken a tremendous leap forward in this election and will continue to grow stronger in the future until we finally win.
“Our campaign will continue to work in the state convention process. We will continue to take leadership positions, win delegates, and carry a strong message to the Republican National Convention that Liberty is the way of the future.
“Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted. Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have. I encourage all supporters of Liberty to make sure you get to the polls and make your voices heard, particularly in the local, state, and Congressional elections, where so many defenders of Freedom are fighting and need your support.
“I hope all supporters of Liberty will remain deeply involved – become delegates, win office, and take leadership positions. I will be right there with you. In the coming days, my campaign leadership will lay out to you our delegate strategy and what you can do to help, so please stay tuned.
The MSM took this and spun it into something it was never meant to be:
Ron Paul suspends presidential campaign – but supporters stay loyal
Ron Paul effectively suspends campaign for president
HUFFPOST HILL – Ron Paul Drops Out (Ron Paul Was Still Running?)
Ron Paul suspends campaign
Ron Paul effectively ending presidential campaign

Below is message from someone at the San Franscisco Ron Paul 2012 headquarters:
Many of you have sacrificed your money, your homes (meeting and
events), resources and the most precious gift you have…your time.
Many of us have all been at this in California since 2007 and we thank you.
If you have not already heard that The Ron Paul 2012 Campaign is not spending any money in Primaries at this time.
this does not mean he is dropping out of the race. Ron Paul is still on the ballot and the delegate process is still up for grabs in California.
As always and in all campaigns it is up to you the volunteers to make it happen.
I repeat he is not dropping out of the race I got this straight from Jesse Benton.

The work does not stop here people, many want it to stop here, but we need to keep on fighting, in state conventions, at the RNC in Tampa and BEYOND!
