Voting for Independent Ron Paul would help President Obama win re-election, according to Paul Ryan, who was asked the question Monday, saying Paul, who ran for the GOP nomination in 2012, would split the vote and assist Obama’s election.
“Do you want Barack Obama to be reelected? Then don’t vote for Ron Paul,” Ryan said during a campaign speech in Lima, Ohio, on Monday.
Ryan went on to say that Paul was a good friend.
“Actually, Ron’s a friend of mine. I know Ron very well. I like Ron quite a bit. There are many things that Ron has championed that I’m a big believer in, especially liberty and sound money.”
Although Paul is no longer campaigning for president, he has not endorsed Mitt Romney’s campaign.
