Paul hints presidential campaign will end soon

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption=" Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) ran for president as a Libertarian in 1988."](CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is hinting that his run for the White House is about to end, saying the "presidential campaign will soon wind down."

His comments came two days after Sen. John McCain became the presumptive GOP nominee.

"Though victory in the conventional political sense is not available in the presidential race, many victories have been achieved due to your hard work and enthusiasm," the Texas congressman said in a video to supporters posted by his campaign on YouTube on Thursday.

    It's a shame that Ron Paul didn't get more exposure. He was clearly the best GOP Candidate.

    Ron Paul would make a better GOP nominee then McCain. Too bad he could not pull it off.

    I applaud Ron Paul for his run. He raised interesting issues and brought some excitement to the campaign. His supporters were incredibly enthusiastic - and were a lot of fun to meet on the campaign. I will miss him in the race.

    CNN is guilty along with all the other neocon media outlets.

    We will not forget these ideas, you can not silence us all.

    We are mad as hell.....

    I hope he endorses Barack Obama, his supporters should back Senator Obama now.

    Yeah, you WOULD cover the fact that Ron Paul may be dropping out of the race.

    Too bad you didn't offer him fair press coverage all throughout the rest of his campaign.
