BANGOR, Maine (AP) -- Presidential hopeful Ron Paul wants other Republicans to know that he and his supporters plan to hang around for a while longer.
The Texas congressman is on a two-day campaign swing through Maine, which holds caucuses starting Feb. 4.
Paul addressed a packed town hall meeting in Bangor on Friday and said he was braving the snowy weather to pick up delegates.
He is skipping Tuesday's presidential primary in Florida to focus on caucus states like Maine. Such states helped Barack Obama accumulate enough delegates to win the Democratic nomination in 2008.
Maine will award 24 delegates this year, compared to 12 four years ago.
Paul placed a weak fourth in South Carolina's primary last Saturday.
