The RLC rarely endorses a presidential candidate. In order to preserve the integrity of the organization, an endorsement requires near unanimity among all its active state affiliates. In fact, the last time the RLC has endorsed a presidential candidate was Steve Forbes in 1996.
But the national RLC announced on the eve of the Iowa primary, after the required consultation with the state RLCs including Florida, that the RLC is officially endorsing Ron Paul for president of the United States.
“Paul has often been a lone vote against big government and big spending in the wilderness of the House of Representatives, but as president that lone vote would become a veto and stop government abuses dead in their tracks,” observed Earl Bandy, Chairman of the RLC of Colorado. “That alone is a great reason to put Ron Paul in the White House and give him that power.”
