Ron Paul's Nevada Campaign Rebuffs Then Dismisses WARNING From Republican National Committee

BY LAURA MYERS
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

The Nevada chairman of Ron Paul's presidential campaign on Thursday dismissed a Republican National Committee threat not to seat the Silver State's delegation at the national convention if it's packed with too many Paul supporters.

The warning came in a letter sent on Wednesday to the Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald, who had asked for a legal opinion about delegate selection ahead of the state GOP convention Saturday.

The RNC lawyer suggested it would be "highly likely" the Nevada delegation's 28 seats at the Tampa convention would be jeopardized if Paul delegates took up spots that should be allocated instead to Mitt Romney, the presumptive GOP nominee who won the Feb. 4 caucuses in Nevada with half the vote.

I Just Had To Post This Thread...I Was Waiting For This Day!

Ron Paul's vastly superior ground game has finally hit the Proverbial "FUNNY BONE"....All the hard work and persistence has paid off. We need only to keep it up...Please don't stop showing up..Romney is now become a wounded animal. This is when he is most danerous. Look for some more dirty tricks or media attacks coming our way. This will be a signal that Romney may be in danger of losing the nomination...

The NWO establishment controlled left -Right paradymn has been shattered and has been dealt a major setback. Romney's lack of GROUND GAME IS now self evident...He cannot compete with Ron Paul on this level. There is ZERO real support for him. What this tells me is that all of the GOP dirty tricks (Fraud) has not helped Romney much. The glaring fact is that Romney never has a citizen grassroots ground game equal to Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul's..

Romney may have the money, the staff, the media behind him, but NO REAL GRASSROOTS SUPPORT. This problem may be his waterloo, his achilles heel. Few will stick their necks out to become a delegate. He doesn't excite or move enough of his supporters to show up at the precinct, county, or district delegations. By the time the delegates hit the state level, Romney's numbers are far lower than Paul's..

These establishment hacks are VERY, VERY seriously worried about the GREAT American LIBERTARIAN...

God has heard my prayer....and now its.... "GAME ON!!"

Romney is bleeding delegates to Ron Paul and I'm loving it. The GOP is more than capable of defrauding Ron Paul at the polls, but they can't skew the delegate process and unless they change the rules somewhere down the road before Ron Paul roars into Tampa with a ton of delegates..

We are going to the RNC and beyond...Believe it!

Peace!

"E"

Game On!

Let's take this all the way to victory. We the people cannot relax now. Step up efforts everywhere and in every way. Let's have an honest election for a change.

The establishment is on the brink.

We are taking over and it is driving them insane. I love it.

It's awesome being on the side of the revolutionary forces, breaking the will of the establishment. :)

McDonald

What did he do that was crooked when you worked with him before?

If the RNC
