Don't be fooled by the misquote of RNC Rule 40Submitted by Dad of Liberty on Thu, 04/26/2012 - 20:49
This is actually a pretty decent article, but the writer got an important detail wrong.
"As the primary season rolls on and Paul is still looking for his first contest win, the odds of a Paul presidency look bleak. Paul is also up against an RNC rule, Rule 40, that states a candidate must have received a plurality of votes in five states in order to even be considered at the convention. Paul has yet to receive a plurality in one state."
Don't be misled!
According to the actual rule book, Rule 40(b) states the following:
"Each candidate for nomination for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States shall demonstrate the support of a plurality of the delegates from each of five (5) or more states, severally, prior to the presentation of the name of that candidate for nomination."
The candidate needs a plurality of DELEGATES, not votes, in at least 5 states. And Paul is easily on track to meet that requirement.
