Ron Paul Addresses Revelation of Bachmann's Migraines

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Congressman Ron Paul -- Michele Bachmann’s challenger for the GOP nomination who's also a medical doctor -- weighed in for the first time on the Congresswomen’s revelation that she long suffers from migraines.   

“I think it is probably legitimate to know.  But I don’t think that it disqualifies someone from running for office.  I don’t think that should be the deciding factor on how well she does but I would say that the information is reasonable to know about,” said Paul.

Paul’s comments came during a Wednesday morning radio interview with Bryan Nehman, co-host of WMAL’s The Morning Majority Show in Washington, D.C.  Dr. Paul said he has a lot of familiarity in treating women with migraines as a practicing OB/GYN for years in Texas.

He added, “it is pretty rough -- I mean it is a tough problem to take.  I have a lot of empathy and sympathy for her if she is suffering from that.”
