Supporters of Texas Rep. Ron Paul booed one of Mitt Romneys adult sons off the stage Saturday at the Arizona Republican Party convention as he tried to consolidate support for his father.
Josh Romneys speech to state GOP members was cut short by jeers from Paul backers at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, the Arizona Republic reported.
The states convention was to elect delegates for the national convention in August, where the former Massachusetts governor is expected to wrap up the nomination to take on President Barack Obama.
We cannot afford four more years of President Obama, said Josh Romney, the third of Mitt Romneys five sons. We need someone to step in there and turn things around.

But Josh had to stop repeatedly as people booed and yelled for Paul, who has continued campaigning in the Republican primary. All other challengers, including Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, have dropped out of the race, and Romney has a commanding lead over Paul in the estimated delegate count.
But Paul supporters have begun flooding state conventions, recently winning control of delegate majorities in Nevada and Maine.
Josh Romney tried to pacify the crowd by taking a moment to recognize his fathers former rivals. It appeared to have little effect: Telling delegates to vote for his dad as he finished up, the crowd exploded with competing boos and cheers, cutting him short.
According to the Republic, some attendees said they heard Paul supporters chanting outside that Mitt Romney was the white Obama.

..and people wonder why few can stomach any of paul’s little band of short-bus window-lickers around.
Damn fools. The choice is clear: the Mormon or the Marxist. I’ll take the Morman, thank you.
Ronpaul cultists, classy as ever.
Romney should pull out and save America.
Hear! Hear! Freedom of speech. Let it be!
That’s unfortunate. Not allowing someone to speak is a leftist tactic.
Mark Levin was saying how rude the Ron Paul supporters are, and even invade his Facebook page, and are the worst posters.
Demanding conservatives BOW to Bishop Romney
is a Romney tactic.
ROMNEY IS NOT THE CANDIDATE.
Say that again.
ROMNEY IS NOT THE CANDIDATE.
what’s sickening is that there is more energy and activity from the paulistas than the movement conservatives (who do not even have a candidate left to compete in these grassroots events).
If Romney is not the candidate...who is? We have examined the history of Romney and his flip flopping endlessly. Sadly he is the only one with a chance at stopping Obama. Which candidate do you see as the one who can stop Obama?
I didn’t demand anything and despite your CAPS shouting he is the nominee. Deal with it.
Mitt Romney sucks.
This is like a fist fight between Nazis and Communists - I’m not sure who to root for....
Our local Ron Paul supporters all act like they’ve been off their meds.Stupid and crazy is a bad combination.
Ron Paul: yes on drugs, yes on whores, no on free speech.
It is sad that a guy who has as many good ideas as Ron Paul is supported by a bunch of people who apparently had their political apprenticeships at the knees of Saul Alinsky. True liberterians believe in the free exchange of ideas. These Paul supporters are just fascists playing at libertarianism.
OWS by another name. . .same unwashed and rude morons.
Does Paul ever have rallies of his own, or do his supporters just go and disrupt other people’s? (I have been to several...and it’s a pattern)
