GOP Presidential Candidate Ron Paul

Download Audio

Texas Congressman and maverick GOP presidential contender Ron Paul is the debate stage wild card in the Republican push for the presidency. In debate after debate, after McCain and Giuliani and Romney and the rest have had their main-line say, Ron Paul turns over the tables.

He trembles with passion as he says the GOP has lost its way, above all in Iraq. Bush backers hate him. Disillusioned Republicans, and many others, have made him a cult hero, and maybe more than that.

This hour On Point: a conversation with the GOP's fierce fringe candidate for the presidency, Ron Paul.


Ron Paul, Republican congressman representing Texas's 14th District and candidate for US president.

This program aired on June 21, 2007.
