What happened at the convention in my tiny county in Nevada.Submitted by ausscyn on Sat, 03/10/2012 - 20:53
We had a victory today in Storey County, Nevada. We're only able to send 8 delegates to the State Convention, but we started working weeks ago for this. You may recall, Ron lost by ONE vote in our county, but nonetheless, the votes were spread out among the other candidates quite evenly, even though we'd worked our butts off.
So, using our votertracker software, we identified all the precinct delegates for Ron, and also RP people who weren't elected precinct delegates who still might come to the convention. We worked the phones & those people like they were a fertile field. We went into our convention with a preprinted slate of ALL Ron Paul precinct delegates & alternates who are also Ron Paul. ALL of them WON! Our County Chair, who is Romney, didn't even win. We really did do our best to do ALL that we could do before this convention, in order to achieve our aims.
I came home elated, only to find out that Carson County's convention was FUBAR. The Chair made them declare for a candidate & only elected delegates in proportion to the vote in that county. TOTALLY against the rules. These people will have to file a Grievance with the state & if anyone has some ideas about how to do this successfully, please come forward. While I am ecstatic, my beloved friends in Carson have been rooked. Please help them.
