Hey Alaska, what news out of your state convention?

I heard the state conventions for Alaska were last night, but I haven't heard any news out of them.

The real question of course is...

(One of Alaska's rules.)
If a candidate drops out before the State Convention, the national delegates apportioned to that candidate are re-apportioned non-pledged.

So, the real question is; what becomes of Gingrich & Santorum's delegates since Gingrich hasn't technically "Suspended" his campaign until next Tuesday, and since Santorum has also only "Suspended" his campaign too?

Where do their delegates go now? Could be an interesting end to this convention.

Nice to know that we at least have a few delegates, but it would even be better to find out that we pull off another upset. :-)

Unfortunately it looks like Paul only got 6 + 6 alternates. Not enough for plurality : (

Looks like they were all forced to vote for this slate

I would be surprised if Santorum and Gingrich...

... are not completely out of the race by the time Tampa rolls around. Per your posted link earlier, Green Papers calculates the bound delegate totals this way:

Romney = 8
Santorum = 8
Paul = 6
Gingrich = 2

We should probably assume that the three "GOP bigwig" delegates will support Romney, which brings Romney up to 11 total. However, if we sweep the elected delegates today with a straight Paul slate, and later Santorum and Gingrich do drop out, Paul will then have 6 + 8 + 2 = 16 delegates!

Things would get more complicated if we need to implement a joint "Conservative" slate with the Santorum and/or Gingrich delegates. The point is, we can get a plurality of delegates out of Alaska if things go well for us today. Go, Alaska Patriots!

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. :) I started a thread too

Check out the link above.

More importantly though, here is at least how the Alaska District Convention went.

Yes I have thought it odd

Alaska has been so hush, probably for good reason, but I'm dieing to hear something:-)

yea, if there is any info

yea, if there is any info that can be shared what won't have some adverse effect by the act of sharing, I'm curious to know what's been going on

The Alaska State Convention began on Thursday...

... and concludes today. I suspect (but don't know for a fact) that the National delegates will not be picked until later today.

But, I agree... Can any one safely share any information concerning what has happened up there over the past two days? Inquiring minds want to know.

Why the silence? I am anxious to know also!
