Fox News Story & Poll: "Ron Paul supporters eye upcoming conventions in delegate-grabbing quest"

Ron Paul supporters eye upcoming conventions in delegate-grabbing quest

Don't tell Ron Paul the Republican primary is over. He's too busy mucking up Mitt Romney's efforts to accumulate enough convention delegates to officially claim the GOP nomination for president.

Paul's supporters won control of state GOP conventions in Maine and Nevada last weekend, stripping Romney of delegates in Maine but graciously letting him keep the ones he won in Nevada's February caucuses. Next up: Republican state conventions in Minnesota, Missouri, Louisiana and Iowa.

"I don't think they'll be able to ignore us completely," said Kevin Erickson, a pastor from northeastern Minnesota who rescheduled a surgery to qualify as a national convention delegate for Paul.

The father of five supports his family on a single income but said he's budgeted about $6,000 to attend the GOP's August convention in Tampa, Fla. A lifelong Republican, Erickson said he's working hard for a platform that denounces what he sees as a weakening of due process when it comes to detentions authorized by the USA Patriot Act. He expects to have plenty of company.

FOX NEWS is OFF LIMITS to my wife and I here in Maine

I would not give FOC New Channel a hit on their site...don't care waht they think, say, or do. Let them come out and fire Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Chris Wallace, and get rid of few of the babes as well and "perhaps" I might reconsider.

Meanwhile, FOX is going down. Have you checked their ratings of late?

Now they want to play up to Ron Paul? Let them shove their coverage up where the Sun don't shine.

I am starting to appreciate Fox News

The more they continue to keep the peasants in the dark, the closer we get to winning the convention.

We must continue to encourage fox to say "Romney will win the convention".

1) If we continue doing what we are doing, we will win the nomination for the good Dr.

2) All of the Media (especially Factless News) will be so discredited it will become irrelevant.

In the words of Jackie Gleason... "How Sweet it is"
