FILE - In this Feb. 11, 2012 file photo, Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, speaks to his supporters following his loss in the Maine caucus to Mitt Romney, in Portland, Maine. Don’t Paul the primary is over. He’s too busy mucking up Mitt Romney’s efforts to accumulate enough convention delegates to claim officially the Republican nomination for president. Paul’s supporters won control of state GOP conventions in Maine and Nevada last weekend, stripping Romney of delegates in Maine but graciously letting him keep the ones he won in Nevada’s February caucuses. Next up are Republican state conventions in Minnesota, Missouri, Louisiana and Iowa. (AP Photo/Robert F. Bukaty, File)
