Missouri D2 Convention...Brent? What happened?

What happened out there yesterday?

Unity slate of the three stooges against us?
Any dirty tricks?

IT SEEMS SANTORUM HAS INSTRUCTED HIS SUPPORTERS, BEHIND THE SCENES, TO THROW IN WITH ROMNEY IN ORDER TO STOP US, right Brent?

CD 2 was never in the win column.

CD 1 = Stl city
CD 2 = Stl county and portions of St Charles county
CD 3 = remainder of Stc county

Stl county is comprised of folks who migrated out of the city precincts into the county townships in the 1950's & 60's. Now their offspring have migrated to Stc county during the 80's & 90's.

CD 2 has a lot of Santorum supporters and many seasoned citizens Romney supporters. Change scares the hell out these folks and most Santorum voters are still in denial and don't know what to do. Dr Paul's message to the establishment folks is just as much of a change now as it was 30 yrs ago. So they are hard to convert. On the positive, they'll vote for whoever the GOP nominee is.

OK...thanks.

But we should have taken all from CD 1 and 3 then, right?

I'm just curious what went wrong, so that we can learn from it before out state convention in Maine.

Was it dirty tricks, or just a failure of our people to turn out?

I think you answered your question

"a failure of our people to turn out"

AND Santorum supporters aligning with Rmoney, "to get along you have to go along".
