Ron Paul launches fundraising effort ahead of 2012 decision

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul hasn’t declared publicly which office he’ll aim for in 2012, but he’s officially started raising money.

Paul is “strongly considering a presidential run”, a senior adviser told CNN earlier this week. Paul’s also said he’s thought about the open U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Kay Bailey Hutchison. On Wednesday afternoon, the Texas congressman sent out an email to supporters asking for donations to his leadership PAC to help him have national impact in 2012, saying money will affect his decision, whether that means the White House, Congress or otherwise.

“As I look to my political future, there are several intriguing options I could pursue, and I need to gauge the existing financial support to back those options,” he said in the email.

According to the Federal Election Commission, Paul’s Liberty PAC had about $90,000 in it at the end of 2010.

“Money sent to Liberty PAC will allow me the flexibility I need to test the waters and determine the next best step as I continue to fight for what you and I hold so dear,” Paul said in the email. “Liberty PAC funds will allow me to travel, speak out, hire staff, and fund mail, phones, emails, and banner, TV, and radio ads to contact, educate, and persuade our fellow Americans. And, it will provide me with flexibility no other vehicle can.”

In the email, Paul cited numerous 2010 victories by Liberty PAC-supported candidates, including his son Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, as well as “no less than 25 Liberty candidates [who] won election to the New Hampshire State House or Senate” and also a handful of candidates in Iowa.

Paul credited supporters with helping to launch the tea party movement:

“I don’t think even I expected what has happened since we launched our fight in 2007.

“Back then, no one had yet heard of the “Tea Party,” because these groups didn’t really exist. Yet, our supporters organized a record-setting $6 million dollar, one-day fundraising Moneybomb that sent shock waves through the political establishment.

“That Moneybomb was held on December 16, 2007 – the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party.

“It has long been said that the Boston Tea Party launched the American Revolution.

“Well, in 2007, the REVOLUTION launched the ‘Tea Party’!”

The Liberty PAC’s website prominently features a blog entry on Paul’s plans to visit Iowa. According to the site, on March 7 Paul will participate in a three-city event series hosted by social conservative group Iowa Family Leader, and on March 23 he will speak to homeschool group NICHE in Des Moines.
