The same week that Donald Trump caused a stir at CPAC by declaring that Ron Paul couldn't ever be elected president in America, the Texas representative "relaunched his political operation," according to CNN. Despite Trump's assurances, Paul's PAC continues to raise money, and the congressman has remained coy about his ultimate plans.
Courtesy of Talking Points Memo, here was the Donald taunting Paul's supporters on Thursday:
Paul's political director, Jesse Benton, brushed aside Trump's comments. "We are dismissing Donald Trump as not a serious person in politics," Benton told CNN.
Still, Paul has made no formal declaration of his intention to run. Over at RonPaul.com, meanwhile, supporters of the libertarian-leaning politician might be feeling a bit crestfallen given that a recent story titled "Ron Paul to Run for President in 2012, Will Announce in January 2011?" came and went without said announcement.
Paul was scheduled to address the CPAC crowd today. Will Trump be watching?
