TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Congressman Ron Paul is lashing out at Republican efforts to marginalize his supporters at the upcoming party convention, telling a counter rally to stand firm because, in his words, “we will become the tent eventually.”

The plucky GOP presidential candidate hasn’t backed presumptive nominee Mitt Romney yet. He appeared Sunday evening at a rally on the edge of Tampa.

Republicans officials have reduced the ranks of Paul delegates.

The Texas congressman lectured his party about being too willing to intervene abroad, too timid in combating a monetary policy he sees as misguided, and too lax about preserving civil liberties.

Paul told The New York Times he was denied a chance to speak because he refused to let the Romney campaign vet his remarks and give an unconditional endorsement.
