Ron Paul had his best night of the year in Minnesota on Tuesday, beating Mitt Romney for a strong second-place showing and proving he can expand his base of support from four years ago.
Coming off an underwhelming third-place finish in Saturday’s Nevada caucuses, the results validated the Texas congressman’s strategy of focusing on caucus states at a critical moment.

Paul told supporters Tuesday night that he could still end up with more delegates than winner Rick Santorum in the state’s non-binding caucuses because his fierce loyalists intend to work the convention process to their advantage.

“We had a very, very strong second place — and it’s going to continue,” he told more than 200 supporters. “We do have to remember: the straw vote is one thing, but then there’s a whole other thing — delegates — and that is where we excel.”
