Love and hugs to those tenacious and brave Paulites who are fighting it out in the Republican trenches for delegates. Something is definitely happening! Politics is a dirty and gritty business where principled men and women are scorned as the enemy of the state. It's definitely a slugfest and the Paulites are the toughest sluggers on the planet.
Ron Paul has won 5 delegates and at least 10, possibly 12, alternate delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa on August 27. These "district" candidates were directly elected in yesterday's primary per the tabulated official election returns with 99% reporting....Pennsylvania sends 72 unbound delegates to the Tampa convention along with their alternates. Three (3) of these are the head state party officials, and ten (10) "at-large" delegates will be decided at the state convention, tentatively set for June 10. The remaining 59 delegates WERE determined yesterday by popular vote, 3 or 4 delegates from each of the 18 congressional districts. Voters are permitted to vote for a maximum of three or four delegates on their ballots, but no delegate is allowed to have the candidate he/she supports appear on the ballot beside them. The end result is that without campaign organization, the delegate and alternate delegate selection become a crapshoot. The Paul campaign published its delegate list here.
