Ron Paul: Fox Intentionally 'Excluded' Rand From Main Debate

His poll numbers are in the doghouse and he was kicked off the main stage of the last Republican presidential debate, but Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky still has wiggle room to rally and capture the 2016 GOP nomination, his father, former Sen. Ron Paul, tells Newsmax TV.

"I think he may well surprise everybody because he has a good organization and caucus states are different," Paul, a Texas Republican, said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

A two-time Republican presidential candidate himself, Ron Paul is also critical of the Fox Business Network which hosted last week's debate, saying the cable station deliberately relegated his son to the second-tier debate because of his ideology.

"[Rand] has a different position on civil liberty and the war on drugs and Fox [said]: 'No way, we're not going to have you out there. We're going to find a way to exclude you.' So they excluded Rand Paul," he said.

"So the system isn't really that fair. Actually, when we ain't even got to the convention, they've changed the rules and with the rules they changed [it] now looks like it could help [Donald] Trump.

"And they're in a tizzy now, the Republican Party, because they got to change the rules again because we certainly don't want to help Trump. It is a very unfair system. The political system is very corrupt."

In the latest NBC News/Survey Monkey national poll, Trump, the GOP presidential front-runner, remains in first place with 38 percent, followed by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas with 21 percent, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida with 11 percent, and Dr. Ben Carson with 8 percent. Rand Paul scored less than 4 percent.
