Paul delegates can no longer align with Romney delegatesSubmitted by champion26 on Mon, 03/26/2012 - 15:04
I just realized:
Unless forming an alliance with Romney delegates is the ONLY way for the Paul campaign to get a majority of delegates from a state, the Paul campaign can no longer afford to form alliances with them.
We cannot forget that unless this Republican primary goes to a brokered convention, then Ron Paul has zero chances of being the nominee. The only person who can gain the nomination outright with a majority of delegates before the convention at this point in time is Romney.
And so rather than squeezing out a couple more delegates for us by aligning with Romney, Paul's campaign needs to squeeze out Romney's delegates in favor of Santorum, even if it does cost us a few. Because every delegate that doesn't go to Romney is another delegate that stops Romney from being awarded the nominee at the convention.
Not sure what else to say from here, but this issue needs to be part of the discussion because this thing could be decided by just a few delegates.
