AP Headline: Ron Paul Supporters DOMINATE Minnesota GOP Convention

READ LAST PARAGRAPH!!!
http://www.inforum.com/event/apArticle/id/D9US018G0/

By PATRICK CONDON The Associated Press - ST. CLOUD, Minn.

"Supporters of maverick Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul are seizing control of Minnesota's state Republican Convention.

The Paul backers scored a major victory Saturday when they claimed 12 of 13 delegate slots to the GOP National Convention in Tampa in August.

Twenty-seven other delegates were previously chosen. In all, 32 of 40 Minnesota national convention delegates support Paul over presumed presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Even U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann failed to win a delegate slot on the first ballot. She faced a runoff against a Paul supporter but he conceded out of respect to the congresswoman."

You can argue it both ways.

You can argue it both ways. We need ever delegate we can get, but making nice might help us win even more in sitches like AZ and OK.

I beg to differ. You cannot

I beg to differ. You cannot trade with venomous snakes.

This is why I have big problem with "Decorum Respect Civility Professionalism" crap Jesse Benton is pushing. We NEED every single delegate. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM, very badly!

Did you hear? We got NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in delegate heavy Georgia?

Heck, in Vermont (which is in supposed Ron Paul ruling New England Country, same one in proximity of Maine/New Hampshire where he has ruled) he got ONLY 2 delegates to Romney's 12!!! And he had very high numbers in Vermont straw poll, upwards of 25% to 30%.

Are we becoming complacent with the rubbish Jesse Benton pulled? Snatching that delegate away from Bachmann would've made up for our loss in Vermont. And besides, we should have NEVER shown mercy to a HATER anti-American snake like Bachmann.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

That was a nice thing to do -

That was a nice thing to do - concede. I wouldn't have done it :)

wrong thing to do

that isn't even nice - it is wrong.

Conceded?

respect? where are we going? what are we doing?

conceded to someone as president who was pushing killing more people. The same person who promotes perpetual war. Bad mistake. She should just stayed home. Now more evil will represent with cheating and lying etc...
How quickly we forget.

Michelle Bachman didn't even show up to the convention

and the convention hall is located in her district.... She really cared about her people didn't she.

Who said liberty minded

Who said liberty minded conservatives were not mindful of the least among us...

Even U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann failed to win a delegate slot on the first ballot. She faced a runoff against a Paul supporter but he conceded out of respect to the congresswoman."

Tough decision...

... but this just shows the character of our movement.

What's the hope here,

that she'll reverse her Romney endorsement and become a Paul delegate?

New Hampshire and Ecuador.
