    Rep. Ron Paul said his supporters wouldn't want him to leave the race and that he hopes to collect more delegates for the GOP convention in August.

    Republican presidential contender Rep. Ron Paul said he's friendly with GOP front-runner Mitt Romney but that he's not planning to endorse the former governor anytime soon.

    Paul told reporters Wednesday in Fort Worth that he and Romney know each other well. But Paul said he will continue his campaign and hasn't heard from Romney's camp about dropping out.

    The congressman said his supporters wouldn't want him to leave the race and that he hopes to collect more delegates for the GOP convention in August.

    Paul, who represents the 14th Congressional District, said he sees the convention the same way he sees his job as a congressman -- as a chance to change minds, even if he doesn't change laws.

    Almost 3,000 people packed a Fort Worth auditorium Wednesday to hear Paul speak.
