United Press International

Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul on Friday entered the race for the Libertarian Party's presidential nomination, saying he would try to abolish income taxes, Social Security and many federal agencies if elected.

Paul, 51, is a physician from the Houston suburb of Lake Jackson.

The Libertarians will hold their nominating convention in September. The party's other announced presidential candidate is Indian rights activist Russell Means.
