Is Ron Paul still running for President?

No, but his organization is trying to take over Repulican party organizations at the grass roots level. A lot of these people have never been involved with the Nueces County Republican Party, but insisted on their people leading the county delegation to the state convention and getting lots of the appointments to the delegate list. Quite a few of the leaders of the Nueces County Repubican Party remember 20 years ago when a bunch of Pat Robertson supporters successfully took control of the county convention and it damaged the party for 20 years.

Regardless of who gets seated at the national GOP convention, party rules that have the force of state law dictate that the delegates vote according to how the congressional districts voted. Every single congressional district gave John McCain an absolute majority. This means McCain won all the delegates under the rules making delegate allocation "winner-take-all for a candidate getting an absolute majority of the CD primary vote. All of the statewide at large delegates also must vote for McCain, because he won an absolute majority in the statewide primary vote.
