Six States Nominate Congressman Ron Paul for President at the Republican National Convention
TAMPA, August 28, 2012-- Supporters of Congressman Ron Paul have collected the necessary signatures to nominate him for President of the United States at the RNC. The current rules state that a plurality of delegates from five states are required to nominate a candidate for President. The Secretary of the Convention, Kim Reynolds, was presented with the forms over an hour before the call for nominations.
We are excited to get Dr. Paul nominated, said Wayne Terhune, Nevada Delegation Chairman. Congressman Pauls message of limited, Constitutional government, sound foreign policy, and personal liberty needs to be heard on this convention floor.
The list of nominating states and territories are: Nevada, Minnesota, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska, and the Virgin Islands.
Good going clown face. No wonder they wanted to change the rules.
No kidding. This sucks. :(
He needs to return to the Mothership......
Ron Paul support from NC
the branch Paulinians are at it again. I hope Rand’s supporters don’t mimic this.
Now how does this work since General Romney has already been nominated?
And MSM will cover that instead of anything else.
Ron Paul supporters are delusional. The guy will never be elected president and supporting him only helps Obama. This years Ross Perot?
He is a jerk.
I’ll bet Barry the Kenyan Guy finds Ronnie the Peacenik’s antics very amusing and “entertaining”. Ronnie wants to be the next Ross Perot.
This is not just about Ron Paul, this is about a group of people who are actively trying to destroy the GOP. You will a path of destruction and Democratic wins wherever they’ve been known to slither.
Could you give me more info about that?? Who is behind RP and what rat wins have they gained?? Just want to know for ammo against a friend who is conservative but has drunk the RP kool-aid.
Note that he didn’t actually win all those places. And it is hard to imagine how he could have a plurality of Nevada delegates, given that Mitt Romney won 20 of the 28 delegates. Sadly, though Gingrich beat Paul for 2nd place, he didn’t manage to get ANY delegates.
Of course, what happened was that Paul managed to get his supporters elected as “Romney” delegates. And while they were bound to vote for Romney in the 1st round, they are claiming that they still have the right to nominate Ron Paul, because that isn’t a “vote”.
This is part of what caused the battles today, as Romney looked to replace delegates that were bound to him but were actually opposed to him. It’s an absurd way to pick delegates, to allow delegates to lie at caucuses and then attack their own supposed candidate at the nominating convention.
I’m not happy about Romney one bit, but Ron Small IS NOT the answer.
Beck was able to show that many of the groups funding Ron Paul could be connected to Soros.
This assinine move does more to destroy thier agenda than anything ever accomplished.
Instead of getting inside and eating the thing out from the inside, the GD dumb assholes pull a stunt like this.
