RNC sends warning letter to NV GOP


In a letter delivered Wednesday to GOP Chairman Michael McDonald, the RNC's chief counsel said if Ron Paul delegates are allowed to take too many slots for the national convention, Nevada's entire contingent may not be seated in Tampa.

If Mittens has it all sown up, then why worry over one state? In fact, why worry at all?
What ever happened to "just a few virtual internet supporters"?

That's such BS.

The RNCs rules actually say that no state can force a delegate to go to vote for any specific candidate, it's just supposed to be done traditionally on the first ballot.

As a Paul supporter, I would not advocate candidates that are honor bound on the first ballot to change their vote, but after that first ballot anything should be on the table. Without a majority for Romney, anybody else should have the chance at winning. Be it Paul, Santorum, or even an outsider like Marco Rubio.

That's how the rules are set up, and now that it appears Paul has a chance in a contested convention, they are trying to prevent the chance.
