A spokesman for Ron Paul says the Republican presidential candidate is ending his campaign.

Spokesman Jesse Benton says Paul will make the announcement Thursday night during a speech in Austin, Texas. Paul also will announce that he is beginning a new effort to elect libertarian-leaning Republicans like himself to public office nationwide.

Benton says the announcement was not a disappointment, but rather is exciting.

Paul's announcement will be a formality. The Texas congressman won few delegates during the Republican primaries, but he raised millions of dollars online and developed a large, grass-roots following among those backed his call for ending the war in Iraq and smaller government at home.

    Too bad. He's the only true American running. Good bye, America. It used to be a wonderful place to live.
