MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) SC Senator Tom Davis has announced his endorsement of Ron Paul, a candidate he feels can beat Barack Obama while staying true to Republican Party principles.

During a press conference in Myrtle Beach Sunday night, Davis announced his endorsement of candidate Ron Paul, saying Dr. Paul has fought a lonely battle in Washington against crony capitalism.

Davis commented that his endorsement is about the ideals that Ron Paul stands for.

Taking to the podium after receiving his endorsement, Paul told the crowd that showed up at the Pallisades Ballroom in Myrtle Beach Sunday that, "We will do well next Saturday."

Paul added that current administration is bad, but bad ideas have been happening for the past thirty years.

Paul said he'd like to cut the budget $1,000,000,000,000 in his first year in office, and bring the troops home. He added we shouldn't go to war unless Congress declares it, and the United States should stop being world police. There's no reason we should go into Iran, Paul said.

Paul said he wants a stronger national defense, and mentions of the National Defense Authorization Act, signed into law by President Obama on Dec. 31, 2011, brought boos from the crowd.

Paul later added that our rights come from our Creator, not our government.

WMBF News Reporter Will Whitson is at the press conference and will bring more details as they become available.
