Paul rejects McCain's plea for endorsement

WASHINGTON (AP) - Texas Congressman Ron Paul says he rejected GOP presidential nominee John McCain's appeal for his endorsement.

Paul, who failed in his bid for the Republican nomiantion, says he received a surprise call from McCain's campaign this week asking for his endorsement.

Paul turned them down.

Paul said: "The idea was that he would do less harm than the other candidate."

Paul won no primaries but developed a strong following on the Internet.

Paul appeared at a news conference with third-party candidates, including Ralph Nader and former Georgia Democratic Representative
Cynthia McKinney.

Paul suggested backing the non-major party candidates.
