Ron Paul playing Moneyball?

in Uncategorized by

Ron Paul’s campaign chairman, Jesse Benton, tells the Huffington Post, that Paul is “committed to a numerical-based operation premised on finding value where others don’t. It’s the Money Ball of campaign strategies and it’s rooted in, of all places, Obama’s 2008 campaign.”

Said Benton: “You try to look at what models have worked in the past and Obama’s model worked. Now we have different ideas about where we would like to take the country, but he ran a brilliant campaign. He unleashed his grassroots to work hard, get involved in their communities, and really fight for some principles and that’s what we are trying to do too.”
