Texas congressman Ron Paul has announced that while he’s not dropping out of the Republican presidential primary, he will no longer be actively campaigning.

“Our campaign will continue to work in the state convention process,” Paul writes on his campaign blog. “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.”

Indeed, Paul’s delegate strategy – and whether it might create a rift on the convention floor – has been the subject of much speculation.

“Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted,” Paul continues. “Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have.”
