Ron Paul said Monday that he would continue to run his presidential campaign “in a modified way” even if Mitt Romney sews up the 1,144 delegates necessary to win the Republican nomination.
The Texas congressman said he would look to continue to collect delegates and influence the eventual convention platform.
“This campaign is very, very viable for two reasons. One, they want to want to win if we can, they want to maximize the delegates and they do want to have an impact. That is very important to every single supporter,” Paul told CNBC.
Paul added that by remaining in the race, he could potentially benefit from a Romney mistake.
