Paul is sitting in second place behind former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum in Minnesota. The Texas congressman says he will continue to compete and collect delegates to the Republican convention. He says that's the best way to promote his campaign's message.

Paul is not attacking his fellow Republican candidates by name. But he says he's the only candidate that will offer real cuts to the federal budget and is the true conservative in the race.
