Ron Paul launches online TV channel

He didn't have the votes, but there is one thing former U.S. congressman and three time presidential candidate Ron Paul had that most other Republicans lacked in the past two presidential cycles – a young, enthusiastic fan base, and a campaign that took on a life of its own online.

CNN's Erin McPike reports.
