Romney, Paul supporters clash at NV GOP

Supporters of Republican Ron Paul's unlikely presidential clashed with backers of presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney at Saturday's state convention in Sparks in a showdown over selection of national convention delegates.

The convention comes days after a lawyer for the Republican National Committee suggested Nevada's presence at the national convention in August could be jeopardized if Paul supporters swamp the state delegate contingent instead of proportioning representatives based on caucus results.

Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, won the Nevada caucus with half the vote, and under party rules delegates to the national convention are to be allotted proportionally to the caucus outcome. With Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum effectively out of the race, Romney is expected to get 20 of the state's 28 delegates.

(please link to this thread too..maybe ;) )

They came out very fast with this to spin the story all over the country.
All other newspapers will use this story while the crucial part is left out!

We need to come out in droves to counter their spin in comment sections and emails etc,

I agree there's spin in this

I agree there's spin in this article, but it is inaccurate to say they didn't mention what is spoken of in your link.

From the article: "Mischief came early at the convention, when a Paul supporter accused the Romney camp of passing out a fake slate of Paul delegates. The list included some known Romney backers."

Slimestream media

AP: "That bitch accused the Romney camp of passing out a fake slate of Paul delegates. The list included some known Romney backers. All in good fun we suppose... those loveable Romney rascals.."

No mention of fake fraud credentials....
