To the plethora of presidential hopefuls basing their campaigns far outside the Beltway, add one exception: Ron Paul.

The Texas congressman, who formally announced his presidential campaign last month, will put its headquarters in Springfield, Va., his political adviser Jesse Benton told POLITICO. Paul chose proximity to Washington to facilitate his involvement in the political operations while doing his day job in Congress. Also, Benton said, much of the growing campaign staff lives in or around Washington.

Another office for the campaign's mostly-online financial operation will based in Clute, Texas.

Paul's 2008 campaign was based just across the Potomac River from Washington, in Arlington, Va.
