Ron Paul backers prepare takeover in NevadaSubmitted by Lana Lee on Sun, 04/29/2012 - 15:57
Article about NV state convention:
The Ron Paul presidential campaign has a guerrilla-style takeover strategy heading into next week’s Nevada Republican Convention at John Ascuaga’s Nugget in Sparks.
The campaign wants to dominate the convention by delivering as many as 65 percent of the total delegates to the convention floor.
“Whoever shows up controls the tempo of the meeting,” said Carl Bunce, Paul’s campaign chairman for Nevada.
Those who show up will elect 25 of Nevada’s 28 national convention delegates, as three spots for the state chairman, national committeeman and committeewoman are already taken.
The Ron Paul folks want to stack that number with their people. Other state Ron Paul organizations are doing the same, Republicans said.
