Calling All Delegate Alternates!Submitted by Andrew Jetton on Tue, 04/10/2012 - 17:17
With Sen. Santorum suspending his presidential campaign, there will be many delegate spots opening up at the upcoming county, district, and state conventions as his precinct delegates lose interest in the process. This means that alternate delegates just became a lot more important. If you are a county, district, or state convention alternate, make every effort to attend. If you are a Paul delegate leader/coordinator, do your best to get your alternates to the convention.
If we do not fill open spots with our alternates (spots we are entitled to, if our people were elected at the previous level), the establishment will seek to fill the delegate slots with party hacks (AKA Romney supporters) instead. Don't let Romney eat our lunch!
I will be posting regularly to reflect upcoming conventions.
May 02 Update: Now that Newt Gingrich has also suspended his campaign, there will likely be many more delegate slots opening up for Paul alternates, particularly at upcoming conventions in the South. Liberty alternates, fill those open spots in Dixie!
