NEVADA if you are not willing to unbind the delegates (don't be) then at least put abstain wording in your rules

Put wording in your rules allowing for any delegate bound or unbound to abstain for any reason.

Unbinding violates RNC rules...

As bad as I want to see the delegates of all the states unbound, it seems the RNC rules are pretty clear that it cannot be done:

Rule 15(c)(12):

"No delegates or alternate delegates shall be elected, selected, allocated, or bound pursuant to any Republican Party rule of a state or state law which materially changes the manner of electing, selecting, allocating, or binding delegates or alternate delegates or the date upon which such state Republican Party holds a presidential primary, caucus, convention, or meeting for the purpose of voting for a presidential candidate and/or electing, selecting, allocating, or binding delegates to the national convention if such changes were adopted or made effective after October 1 of the year before the year in which the national convention is to be held."

I'm not sure what the "punishment" is, but this seems pretty cut-and-dried to me.

I see people

pushing this on their live blog, anybody on the floor?

Serioulsy, get your "scare-mongering" out of here

After all that the RP has accomplished in NV, you want to start threats calling them "scared". They aren't running scared, they're running smart.

Maybe, just maybe they earned the benefit of the doubt to trust that they know what they're doing.


please...don't be serious, the RNC attorney trying to scare them, if you can't see it, whatever

let's make sure

theysurer hey offer an amendment to allowing abstention
