Praise the Lord for things to come.

Republican National Committee’s own rules which state that no contest can be winner take all prior to April 1, 2012. (See attached RNC memo.)

That was my understanding.....but I guess the RNC will make up the rules as it goes along. Like checking signatures with a fine tooth comb in Virginia to keep Newt off the ballot.

Go, Newt! How sweet would it be if Romney spent $17million to buy a state that isn’t even winner take all?

That sound you hear is heads all over DC exploding!!! Newt taking it to the establishment! Not sure yet, that it is smart, but you gotta say that the guy has cajones and is not afraid to take on his own party.

Jimrob,

After yesterdays turnout, I’m embarrassed to be in Fl. I went to three poll locations and I was the only one at all three. They were all run by hippies and people that looked like occupiers..

I hope Romney has to spend another $17,000,000 fighting to keep all the delegates, and then loses.

Yes, and do recall that Gingrich is very good at these procedural moves (remember his stint as Speaker). I think he’s dusting off his old skills!

I am afraid the powers that be will just ignore their own rules, when it benefits their selected candidate.

The MSM will just follow along, rail against Newt and call him a sore loser.

Still, if it's legally binding that the votes are to be allocated as written in the article, then Newt should get his proportion of the candidates. I hope he succeeds.

Floridians traditionally have trouble with voting.

I dislike that we let little weenie states and obvious incompetents
take out candidates before the real PEOPLE get a say.

Luv it!

I like the idea that Gingrich is now rolling up his sleeves, and the Establishment Elite are being attacked for what they are: Romney-the-RINO boosters!

Newt CLEARLY has a strong argument here, where the Party is held to its own rules (they used the Party Rules against Gingrich in VA to keep him off the ballot, so now it's their turn).

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus warned Florida Republican Party Chairman Lenny Curry of the violation in a December letter quoting the rule, “…’winner-take-all’ states cannot hold a primary or caucus before April 1, 2012.”

LOL!

If not winner take all, I assume proportional. The delegates would be split between Mitt, Newt, Rick and Paul with the lion’s share to Romney. This is still much better for Newt than nothing.

I assume SC was proportional too?
