Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) says independent voters should pick Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein on Election Day.
“The independents who don’t know what to do and who should they pick, I say if you tend to lean towards progressivism and liberalism and you know you are interested in expressing yourself, you can vote for the Green Party,” he told host Thomas Roberts on MSNBC Monday.
“Certainly you could say, ‘Well, I like a lot of what she says about civil liberties.’ I like what she says about foreign policy. She’s probably the best on foreign policy.”
Paul, who has sought the White House three times and earned the Libertarian presidential nomination in 1988, said he is not formally endorsing Stein’s campaign.
