Rand on Ending His Campaign for President: ‘I Will Continue to Fight on for Liberty’
PAUL: "It's been an honor to participate in the Republican 2016 presidential primary. I'm proud of our principled campaign and the thousands of young people that have been energized by our message of limited constitutional government. Ours has been a unique voice in this race, one that says big government threatens Americans from all walks of life, rich and poor, black and white, from the coal miner who lost his job over President Obama's destructive EPA regulations, to the teenager facing jail time for marijuana. I'll continue to fight for justice reform, privacy and your Fourth amendment rights. I'll champion due process over indefinite detention. I'll continue to be a voice-over the out of control regulations, spending and debt that is crippling America's economy and the future of our children. I'll not ignore the terrible costs of the decades of war and chaos in the Middle East and the unintended consequences of regime change and nation building. I'll never forget the thousands of American soldiers who have given their lives and the thousands more who live every day with catastrophic injuries. These are the issues that have defined my campaign. Kelly and I are deeply grateful to our outstanding staff and tireless volunteers and supporters, people who believe in liberty. It has been a privilege to give voice to the liberty movement in this race and I believe we have broaden the debate by being a part of it. Although today I will suspend my campaign for the presidency, I will continue to fight on for liberty, for the Constitution, for justice in the United States Senate. Thank you, and god bless America."
