Paul Sees Top-Two Finish in Iowa While Wary of Backing Rivals

U.S. Representative Ron Paul of Texas predicts a first or second finish for himself in the Iowa caucuses and said he likely couldn’t support Newt Gingrich as the Republican presidential nominee while offering qualified praise for Mitt Romney.

“I’d probably have trouble,” Paul said when asked specifically about supporting Gingrich’s candidacy. He added that he wouldn’t be able to back any Republican nominee in the general election who didn’t call for dramatic change in foreign and domestic policy.
