Establishment Shenanigans in LouisianaSubmitted by mwilliams6464 on Sat, 06/02/2012 - 09:51
Washington - Saturday's Louisiana Republican State Convention in Shreveport promises to be a political donnybrook for the ages. A fight pitting the Ron Paul forces against the rest of the party is likely to lead the convention to split into two competing meetings that will proceed to put together two, somewhat different Louisiana delegations to send the Republican National Convention in Tampa in August, and leaving it to the national GOP's Contest Committee to sort it out.
