"The headline on Drudge says it all "Ron Paul OUT!" Link to the Washington Times article and it says "Ron Paul Ends His Hunt For Votes".
The first headline is NOT TRUE.
The second headline MAY BE.
Either way, read through the article and you will see that the inference that Paul is out of the race is absolutely not true.
The article explains that Paul will abandon the game of going from state to state to trying to win a popular vote that doesn't count for anything. Instead he will focus on the states that are currently holding delegate conventions.
That strategy makes a lot of sense when you have the kind of fights in Oklahoma and Arizona we saw this weekend. The State Conventions is where the nomination will be won or lost not traveling from state to state for beauty contests."

Update: Ben Swann via twitter:
MSM thinks Paul is dropping out because they don't understand delegate process [URL]http://t.co/Vx962L1X[/URL]
That is correct. It just not finacially possible to compete and waste milions of dollors in these primary states. The delagte process is working.... Keep your eyes open for more news to come about that!
Not sure why Paul isn't actively campaigning at this point. Seems like he was doing very well with the delegate process. If Romney wins the nomination the GOP can only blame themselves for going with the status quo. He's no different than Obama. I probably won't even vote if Romney is on the ballot.
If you don't vote for Romney you are voting for Obama, even if you don't cast a ballot. Romney doesn't inspire you? I have no issues with that, but then does Obama? Once again we vote AGAINST one candidate.
The media has too much control over who we get to vote for.
