Paul supporters seize control of Clark County GOP party - News - ReviewJournal.com



Quote:
Supporters of GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul on Saturday effectively took control of the Clark County Republican Party by winning election to 14 executive board positions, or two-thirds of the ruling body.
Quote:
"This is the grass roots taking a stand to change the direction of the party from the county level," said Carl Bunce, Nevada chairman of Paul's campaign and a delegate. "This is bigger than just Ron Paul. This is about liberty and openness and fairness and changing the party."
Hell yeah!

If it is a clear win for one guy, but if it is a contested convention in Tampa, NO they don't.

The first round they are required to vote for how the masses voted. That means that Romney had just over half the votes and will get half the delegates voting for him to open the voting.

They need to edit this:

"This is the grass roots taking a stand to change the direction of the party from the county level," said Carl Bunce, Nevada chairman of Paul's campaign and a delegate. "This is bigger than just Ron Paul. This is about trying to get a guy who finished 3rd in the state the most total delegates from that state; to Hades with the voters and democracy. Long live King Ron the First"

There, fixed.

You seem to be really pissed about Paul's delegate strategy, because that's all you seem to be posting about. :-)

Seems like you know even less about a brokered convention. Delegates won't matter if it gets there, and your also ran isn't on their radar. Jindel, Christie, Jeb, but your guy, pleaze.
