Jesse Benton just lost 2 California Ron Paul VotesSubmitted by pingish on Thu, 05/31/2012 - 02:31
California's Presidential Primary is CLOSED, which means you need to be registered GOP in order to cast a vote for Ron Paul.
My in-laws are generally registered Democrats who love liberty and (oddly) hate taxes. They pinched their noses and registered Republican in 2008 and voted for Ron Paul.
I figured they'd do the same this year.
What happened? They both voted for Barack Obama on the Dem ballot.
"It doesn't matter that I didn't vote for Ron Paul because he dropped out."
Like hell he did. Benton's announcement is exactly the root cause.
