FILE - This Jan. 19, 2012 file photo shows then-Republican presidential candidate, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas speaking at the College of Charleston in Charleston, S.C. Ron Paul is exiting the political stage but his legions of rabble-rousing followers insist they are only getting started. Libertarian-leaning loyalists of the two-time Republican presidential candidate have quietly taken over key-state GOP organizations, ensuring future fights with the GOP’s establishment and laying the groundwork for a future presidential candidate.
