Politico is reporting that Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, is sending out campaign material to South Carolina vets, but omits his opposition to the Iraq war. It seems like this is a high selling point for Paul, who often mentions the donations he’s had streaming in from troops and veterans.

Paul does come out and state his opposition to invading Iran, but that a piece focused on national security would not make any mention his stance against the Iraq war is striking.

That it may, just may, have something to do with the fact that South Carolina is a military and retiree-heavy state is reenforced by other flashes of GOP politics-as-usual: a shot of a young Paul in uniform, a picture of Paul with a vet, a Ronald Reagan quote and promises to improve the VA.
