Ron Paul: Sanders Surge Shows Hillary Won't Win White House

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton should be very concerned about challenger Bernie Sanders, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul told Newsmax TV on Tuesday.

"I don't think Bernie is likely to be the president, but what he's doing is pointing out that Hillary is not going to be president either," Paul, who has run for the White House as both a Republican and a Libertarian, said in an interview on "Newmax Prime" with hosts J.D. Hayworth and Miranda Khan.

"It may turn out that they'll think a coalition and putting Bernie on as a vice presidential candidate or something like that," he said. "Maybe this country is not doing so well for the cause of liberty, but I'm not sure they're ready to pick somebody who's a declared, an honestly declared, Socialist."

He added that, regardless of the other stories making the headlines about the Clinton campaign, "the story will remain that Hillary is not doing very well in the polls."
