Ron Paul Plans 'Major Announcement' Friday

MSNBC.COM - Rep. Ron Paul, a Libertarian presidential candidate in 1988 and a Republican contender in the last presidential race, is giving it another try.

Paul has already formed a formal exploratory committee for a presidential run, a significant step in running for president -- although according to the Federal Election Commission he has not yet filed an official statement of candidacy.

But, looking for another bite at the media apple, Paul will "make a major announcement" on Good Morning America on Friday morning, according to a Paul spokesman. It's another opportunity for the Texas lawmaker to draw additional attention to his scheduled appearances in early primary states New Hampshire and Iowa during a two day campaign swing beginning Friday morning – and of course, to raise money for another bid.

Paul, a fierce foe of the Federal Reserve and a frequent "no" vote on uncontroversial legislation that he considers unconstitutional, won political celebrity status after raising millions with online "money bombs" during the 2008 campaign. He also irked his GOP rivals by suggesting that the 9/11 attacks were the result of American intervention abroad. (And, yesterday, he said that he would not have ordered the bin Laden raid.

 He received the support of 5 percent of GOP and GOP-leaning voters in a recent national poll from Quinnipiac.
