Ron Paul Rejects Phil Gramm Request To Endorse McCain - Urges Americans To Vote For Third Party Candidates

Paul rejects plea to endorse McCain

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Rep. Ron Paul, the Libertarian-leaning lawmaker who attracted a devoted following in the GOP primaries, said Wednesday he rejected an appeal to endorse John McCain's presidential bid.

And Paul said the request came from Phil Gramm, the former McCain adviser whom the campaign jettisoned after he said the country was a "nation of whiners" about the economy.
