(CNN) -- Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is hinting that his run for the White House is about to end, saying the "presidential campaign will soon wind down."




Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) ran for president as a Libertarian in 1988.

 His comments came two days after Sen. John McCain became the presumptive GOP nominee.

"Though victory in the conventional political sense is not available in the presidential race, many victories have been achieved due to your hard work and enthusiasm," the Texas congressman said in a video to supporters posted by his campaign on YouTube on Thursday.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee announced Tuesday he was quitting the the Republican presidential race after McCain's victories in Tuesday's primaries, leaving Paul as his only opponent.

Paul, who ran for president as a Libertarian in 1988, is the sole Republican candidate to call for a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. He is a distant fourth in the GOP delegate count, behind McCain, Huckabee and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts," Paul said. "Revolutions are long-term projects."

Paul's "Hope for America" campaign has been a grassroots effort, focusing on a "limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies," according to his Web site.

"But even with the past year's achievements, we're still the early stages of bringing about the changes that this revolution is all about." E-mail to a friend

This sounds too good to be true.  Is Ron Paul just teasing America?  Does he plan to become a spoiler in the general election?  Time will tell.

Most of America knows the Repugs and Dumbocrats are all bought and paid for by the CFR.  A third party run with internet support is very viable this year.

Paul may win it yet.

You're right that they are all bought and paid for, but it isn't by the CFR, but by the large corporations!  That's why it's best to support someone who didn't take any lobbyist money - either John Edwards, Barack Obama or Dennis Kucinich!

How many delegates did Paul end up with?  Wasm't it something like only 14?

In a cheated dishonest run what does it matter.

He needs to go Libertarian.  He's 72 years old how much time does he think he has left ??  He may as well take a noble dare.

I know America is ready for a Libertarian 3rd party President.
