Fred Karger tops Ron Paul in Puerto Rico primary

But Paul's loss to Karger signals a new low for the Texas congressman.

Ron Paul not only placed last in Sunday's Puerto Rico primary, he lost to Fred Karger, the former actor and political consultant who has never before held elected office.
Karger, who brands himself as the first openly gay Republican
presidential candidate and has failed to garner any significant support
this season—let alone qualify for any presidential debates—led Paul
1,702 votes to 1,452 with 83 percent of precincts reporting Monday morning.
Those totals offered Karger and Paul each less than 2 percent of the overall vote, but still Karger was celebrating.


"LOOKS [sic] WE BEAT RON PAUL IN TODAY'S PUERTO RICO PRIMARY," read the Karger campaign Twitter feed.


Despite Karger's bragging rights victory, Romney still won all of the
20 delegates up for grabs Sunday, easily carrying the state with over
98,000 votes or 83 percent total.But Paul's loss to Karger signals a new low for the Texas congressman.

Though Paul has been much more visible on the national stage and has
received significantly more support in previous contests than Karger
has, the gay rights advocate and former consultant to Ronald Reagan,
George Bush and Gerald Ford made a big push in Puerto Rico's primary,
campaigning there in person, circulating sound trucks, and even running a Spanish-language television ad in the territory.
Despite a loyal and enthusiastic following, Paul has yet to place
first in any presidential primary or caucus, after staking his success
on presidential caucuses.
Paul continues to argue that he and his delegates will play a role at
the convention. And he'll have time to prepare: His campaign schedule
as of late has been light. He held just two in-person events last
week—one in Illinois and one in Missouri.

  • Who cares. Of course the Puerto Ricans don't like him. Ron Paul wants to make English the official language of the US. That way we won't have to waste tax dollars to translate everything into different languages for people who want to live here but are too lazy to learn English. Another pointless article which is desperately grasping at straws.
