“I like the platform that we have right now. I’m concerned that Ron Paul and some of his supporters out there are looking for a platform fight. And I want to make sure that we have strong, principled conservatives there who stood with me in our primary fight to go there and counterbalance the effect of the Paul folks,” said Mr. Santorum on ABC’s This Week.
The Pennsylvania Republican, who exited the race for the Republican nomination in late April, has endorsed former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney — the presumptive Republican nominee. While Mr. Santorum says he plans to support Mr. Romney’s bid, in recent days a growing divide between Mr. Santorum and Mr. Paul has grown.I can think of no better time for the Republican party platform to be publicly influenced by Santorum and Paul than AS CLOSE TO THE ELECTION AS POSSIBLE. America loves those guys! That's why they're doing so well in the primaries.
Speculation that Mr. Paul could use his delegates to influence the direction of the Republican Party comes just one week after his campaign released an email saying they plan to send upwards of 200 to 500 delegates that could persuade Mr. Romney to change his policy.Look up the definition of "overkill" in the dictionary, and you'll find using any kind of persuasion to make Mitt Romney to change his policy.
