Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who is seeking the Republican nomination for president, called Alaska a key state in his campaign during a brief teleconference Friday night.

“Alaska is very important to this campaign,” he said from the campaign trail in Colorado. “It’s the most freedom-loving state we have. If we get people with this sentiment out to vote, we’ll get attention from around the country and around the world.”

Paul, who advocates a strict interpretation of the Constitution, said Second Amendment rights have been eroded over time as well.

“It wasn’t put in the Constitution so you could shoot rabbits or go hunting,” he said. “It was that so that if we ever have to face tyranny in this country, the people will be armed.”
