Declared 2012 Republican Presidential Candidate
U.S. Representative from the State of Texas

Ron Paul

Presidential Candidate Ron Paul


Paul Career

• Ron Paul has had two main careers, his medical practice and his political career.

• Ron Paul did his internship and residency at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, MI.

• He became an obstetrician and gynecologist, delivering over 4,000 babies to date. He opened his own practice in Texas.

• He decided to enter politics in 1971 when President Nixon closed the “gold window” and Paul realized that all money would be political rather than having real value.

• He became a delegate to the Texas Republican Convention and the Republican candidate for US congress but was defeated in 1974.

• He won a special election to fill that seat in 1976 when Congressman Robert Casey was given a presidential appointment but lost it in the general election by less than 0.2%.

• He won the seat again in 1978 and was re-elected in ‘80 and ’82 while continuing to deliver babies. After an unsuccessful 1984 run for the senate he returned to medical practice full time.

• Ron Paul ran for president in 1988 as a Libertarian, more to spread the libertarian ideas than to actually win the office, then returned to his medical practice and co-owned a coin dealership.

• He won a congressional seat in 1996, his third win as a non-incumbent. He was re-elected in 1998 and 2000.

• Paul ran for president again in 2008 and lost out early in the process. He won his 12th term in Congress in 2010 with 80% of the vote.
