His parenthetical postscript is noteworthy as well:
On Saturday, January 19, I will take time away from the honouring of General Leeâ€™s 201st birthday and break my vow never to vote again in order to punch a primary ballot for Dr. Paul, with a modest hope.
What will be interesting is what the Conservative Party will do. They have a line that could be used by a candidate who is not the Republican. I suspect they will endorse the Republican but I suspect that will depend on the candidate.
Thompson is very popular within the NY Conservative Party but will he still be alive by Feb? Depends on SC and Florida.
