2012 Open Primary States: The key to Ron Paul's Republican NominationSubmitted by LatinsforPaul on Sun, 03/06/2011 - 18:24
Since Obama is a strong incumbent for the Democrats for 2012 there will not be any viable Democratic Primaries in 2012. There are 17 states with an Open Primary where many Democrats and Independents will have the opportunity to vote for Ron Paul in the Republican Primary without registering Republican.
Ron Paul's anti-war message of peace and his stance against the Neo-conservatives will resonate strong with many registered Democrats and Independents.
We must organize and put the strongest efforts in these states to encourage Democrats and Independents to vote for Ron Paul and capture all the Delegates of these Open Republican Primary States:
Arizona (Semi-closed, with primaries open only to unaffiliated or unrepresented voters, except for the Libertarian primary.)(57)
Hawaii (Open primary for state, local, and congressional races; caucus system for presidential races.)(20)
Massachusetts (All races' primaries open for "unenrolled"/unaffiliated voters only)(41)
South Carolina (50)
Total delegates for our taking in these Open Republican Primaries: 874 (1,212 needed to win) http://www.thegreenpapers.com/P12/
and here is a start...
