TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul says he has no numeric goal in mind as he chases delegates in Saturday’s Kansas caucuses.
The 12-term Texas congressman said after a Topeka rally with about 500 supporters Friday that he just needs delegates in his bid for the GOP nomination.
Kansas has 40 delegates up for grabs in Saturday’s caucuses, which will be held at 96 locations around the state.
Paul scheduled stops later Friday in Wichita and Lawrence. He also planned to visit caucus sites in the northeastern Kansas GOP stronghold of Johnson County.
Gov. Sam Brownback met with Paul before the rally and stayed a few minutes before joining former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum at another Topeka event. Brownback had endorsed Rick Perry for president before the Texas suspended his campaign.
