    Texas Rep. Ron Paul on Monday announced that five distant relatives of rival Mitt Romney’s family are endorsing his Republican presidential campaign.

    A news release from the Paul campaign boasts of having the support of Ty Romney, Travis Romney, Chad Romney, Jared Romney and Troy Romney. Three of the Romneys — who live in Idaho — will speak on Paul’s behalf during the state’s caucuses on Tuesday.

    “I support Ron Paul because he defends the Constitution, loves America and understands what it means to be an American, including the right to live your life any way you want as long as you respect others,” said chiropractor Travis Romney, a second cousin once removed from Mitt Romney.

    This isn’t the first time a family member of one of Paul’s rivals announced support for the libertarian-leaning candidate from Texas. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum’s nephew, John Garver, penned a column for The Daily Caller endorsing Paul.

    Amusing, but not that big of a deal.

    Five more votes for Ron Paul. Certainly welcome, but probably not going to make a huge dent in the electoral math.

    Have you ever considered trying to be coherent?

    And no it's not a big deal. Could you point at anything in life that indicates all family members must vote for a fellow family member?

    Do you have any clue how many "distant relatives" Romney has?

    Oh my bad. I already know the answer. No, you do not have any clue.

    Romney's family voting for Ron Paul


    The above five distant relatives are not the only family members voting against Romney ... his father was born in Mexico and apparently "family man" Mitt wants nothing to do with his relatives in S America.

    And what relatives does he have in South America? And what evidence do you have that he wants nothing to do with them?

    Take your (Google) pick - his relatives in Mexico claim to have been ignored ...
