Respecting Ron Paul

The GOP and media establishments have no interest in the man. But his electoral track record is pretty impressive:

Ron Paul is the only current member of Congress to have been elected three times as a non-incumbent. Given the 98 percent reelection rates for House members, it’s no great shakes to win three terms or 10 terms in a row. It’s winning that first one that’s the challenge. And Ron Paul has done that three times.

And he may be out-fundraising most of the minor candidates.
