MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Republican presidential candidate and Texas Rep. Ron Paul told The Daily Caller that his foreign policy views have not alienated voters in South Carolina, claiming that he gets “twice as much money” from the military than all of the other candidates combined.

Watch the interview:

“Some people say the foreign policy has gained more strength and more support than any other issue, especially from the military. I get more money, twice as much money as all of the other candidates put together, so that is just talk. I get strong support from the military and I’m very proud of it,” he told TheDC after his speech at a “Faith and Freedom Coalition” event held before the presidential debate.

Some conservatives have labeled Paul’s foreign policy “isolationism.”  (RELATED: Mark Steyn: Ron Paul’s worldview is ‘sheer stupid, half-witted parochialism’)
