Fla's delegates get cut in 1/2

The only get 50. That's the same as New Jersey. Fla isn't such a big deal anymore. It's only significant because it's early, the publicity, etc.

And it's not winner take all either.

Florida Grassroots Video:

They're already hitting things up down there in Florida, but any assistance is NEEDED (i.e., super brochures, phone banking, etc.)

Ron at 10% in Florida...

...before NH, according to Quinnipiac:
http://www.quinnipiac.edu/institutes-and-centers/polling-ins...

We can climb there, especially with our new momentum.

Let's grab some Florida delegates!

Florida needs to be won by the Grass Roots.

We need to coordinate the SuperVoter Brochures drop in Florida with Boots on the Ground. Erik already has the mailing list for each county. If the boots on the ground could call into Erik to order lets say 1000 brochures then Erik would give them the names/house number then that boot on the ground would hand deliver to those people in the county.

Florida is a very expensive state and we need to focus on the mailings in Nevada, Minnesota & Colorado, but we can mobilize a ground Army in Florida to go after these SuperVoters with the help of Erik.

Guys at RonPaulproducts.com are you listening & along with Michael N. You need to put together a chart of covered counties on Dailypaul. That way boots on the ground can see what sections of the county are being covered,etc.

While the campaign isn't focussing on the State maybe because of how the delegates are given vs the cost,etc. We can win by doing a sneak attack with our own Army of Freedom lovers.

I hope you can all communicate with Erik to see if he would get on board.

Forget Florida, Come here to Nevada

Let Newt and Mitt waste their time and money in Florida. After SC, Paul should spend the next two weeks concentrating on Nevada, Colorado, and Minnesota. If can be competitive in Missouri, then there as well.

Get a head start on those states. Nevada, BTW, will NOT be an easy win, but we could double our 14% from 2008 and quite possibly be the first state where we break 30%.

Edit: A quick trip to Florida, just to thank the great volunteers we have there would be fine. Just don't shell out time and money we can use to actually make a real difference elsewhere.

I'm not so sure about that....

Although Florida is also called God's waiting room, there are a great deal of Universitys/colleges where Ron is very popular. Additionally, there are a good many Ron Paul meetups and dedicated supporters who will go all out for Ron.

Florida could be a surprise

The I-4 corridor has a lot of Independents (and Democrats) who have recently registered as Republicans. In my county alone, we had increased the number of GOP registered voters by almost 2.5% just in the first two weeks of December. The county still hasn't released the new total for the last three weeks including the cutoff of Jan 3 (postmarked by). I drove my nephew to the registration office on Jan 3 to hand deliver his registration and the entire time we were there, it was a steady stream of people coming in.

Florida could be a surprise to the Establishment.

How often do candidates concede

or forgo/skip campaigning in states?

Happens all the time. McCain

Happens all the time. McCain didn't even bother with Iowa in '00 or '08. Huckabee skipped New Hampshire. Romney mostly skipped South Carolina in '08. Everybody except Paul and Romney skipped Nevada.

Thanks

I know they'll make a big deal out of it either way but that puts my mind at ease concerning it.

I'm sure he'll say something about it when the time is right.

I don't understand the campaign on this

I completely understand the strategy of not allocating resources to Florida, but why state it publicly? You know the media will use such a statement against us, and it demoralizes the volunteers there.

Just say, "We're competing in every state...one at a time."

to downplay expectations

When campaigns commit to spend limited resources elsewhere they announce which states they are "skipping" so as to downplay expectations when and if they do poorly in the states they "skipped".

If they need money for

If they need money for Florida then they need to just ask for it..set aside a money bomb for it and promote with a ticker and we will donate.He also needs to start telling the public in the next debate that I need your help because the top big banks are all funding Romney but together we can compete on equal ground. Mention Goldman and keep mentioning it until people realize they are funding both puppets.
How can people not connect the dots on this.

probably a gaffe

It could have been spun in a much more positive light

Who knows. Maybe there is a

Who knows. Maybe there is a strategy to their strategy...?

End the Fed. End the Wars. Problems Solved. Ron Paul.

Yep. Maybe a head fake.

I'm my honest humble opinion:

I would love for us to campaign in Florida. But I'm with the campaign when they do the risk analysis of the situation. They concede in saying that the campaign just doesn't have the finances as of right now to commit to such a huge undertaking.

If the moneybomb proves successful, like overwhelmingly successful, I'm all for it. But I'm not sure if investing the funds in Florida would be more wise than just using that extra cash to secure major wins in other caucus states.

Let all the other candidates go bankrupt in Florida trying to snag delegates, and chop away at Mitt's lead, while Ron Paul gobbles up everywhere else. He's got the momentum.

The wind is on our side. That's all we need.

End the Fed. End the Wars. Problems Solved. Ron Paul.

There isn't much to gain from this (I don't think)

Florida is a very tough place politically. The state is horribly corrupt up and down both coasts. (Psychopath Attorney Pam Bondi is a good reflection).

There are tons of youth freedom lovers, especially in the Miami metropolitan area, but for every liberty lover there are a dozen retirees (not Ron Paul's best demographic). There are tens of thousands of Cuban immigrants who vote Republican and despise socialism, but they hear the same propaganda garbage on Telemundo.

I'm worried Florida is a resource drain.

I couldn't type fast enough

I couldn't type fast enough and spoke too soon (just above your post)

I strongly agree.

End the Fed. End the Wars. Problems Solved. Ron Paul.

I think the National RNC wants all states to be proportional.

Maybe Florida is trying to make nice by becoming proportional so they won't be penalized so much for moving up their primary? I bet they will still only have 50 delegates, but maybe their delegates won't have to sit outside at the convention...

I'm in Florida. Does this

I'm in Florida. Does this mean they would NOT be penalized and lose 50% of the delegates? Not sure if this is good or bad. RP needs $$$$.

Anyone know any BILLIONAIRES with a brain?

Jim Rogers.

Can we get that guy to donate to the PAC?

Perfect, more incentive for Grinch or Santorum to take Mitt down

Paul can ignore it, let MSM have their Romney narrative, we'll be ready come NV, ME, CO, MN

Absolutely, that's very good news.

Romney loses some delegates, and RP will get at least a few. Nothing wrong with that.

No way that's permissable! I hate my old people, establishment loyalists infested state!

isn't this a good thing?

Paul's not likely to win Florida and proportions means he would get some delegates.
