Ron Paul LANDSLIDE in Wright County, MNSubmitted by JohnPhillipSousa on Mon, 03/12/2012 - 21:08
Writes Andrew Teasdale:
This is anecdotal, but something way underreported in the MSM, and a story I don’t think is unique.
I live in Wright County, Minnesota. From what I understand, it’s the most Republican of all the MN counties. In my local caucus a few weeks ago, Santorum finished first, Ron Paul second, Romney third, then the other guy. Santorum took the state.
After the voting, we stayed around to vote on delegates to the county convention. Few, if any, of the Romney or Gingrich people stayed after the vote to become delegates.
The Wright county convention was Saturday. I attended. I picked up my name badge and went to the Ron Paul table (there was no Romney table, nor was there a Gingrich table). I asked the Ron Paul person what was the plan and what I could do to support Ron. She handed me a list of 68 names to select for delegates. On the delegate voting sheet, I found about 60 of those names and voted for them. The results were posted yesterday. Of those 68 names on the list the Ron Paul person gave me, at least 50 were delegates to the state convention. I also believe that several of the other delegates were Ron Paul supporters. Ron Paul won my county by a LANDSLIDE. If this is at all representative of the state, he owns Minnesota. I can't help but wonder if this is happening elsewhere...
