The resolution states:
In the event that Republican primary voters select a candidate other than Congressman Paul in February of 2008, the Libertarian National Committee invites Congressman Ron Paul to seek the presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party to be decided in Denver, Colorado during the Memorial Day weekend of 2008.
Dr. Paul has said on many occasions that he has no plans to run a third party or independent campaign and there is no reason to not accept his word, but you have to wonder.
Oh…the connection to Georgia politics is that Bob Barr made the motion to accept the resolution.
By the way, if Dr. Paul did seek the nomination, there is no doubt in my mind that he’d get it.
[UPDATE] That was fast, he already turned it down:
U.S. Rep. Ron Paul turned down a Libertarian Party invitation on Sunday that could have kept him in the 2008 presidential race even if his long-shot bid for the GOP nomination fails.
At a meeting in Charleston, S.C., the Libertarian National Committee on Sunday unanimously approved a resolution praising the Lake Jackson congressman for igniting “a renewed passion for liberty across America.”
The Barr resolution urged Paul to seek the Libertarian Party nomination that will be awarded at the party’s May national convention in Denver.
But Paul spokesman Jesse Benton said it would not happen.
“Ron has no intention to run third party whatsoever,” he said
