The war party did everything they could to defeat pro-peace Republican Walter Jones in the North Carolina primary last week, said Ron Paul, but in the end Rep. Jones prevailed.

The American public is rapidly waking up to the necessity of a non-interventionist foreign policy, said Dr. Paul, and they are coming to understand that the real isolationists are the ones who demand sanctions and tariffs on other countries.
A special bonus for us here at the Ron Paul Institute was Dr Paul's very kind words about RPI's work beginning at 9:39.
