What happened in Florida and North Carolina?

According to http://www.dailypaul.com/232707/take-notice-schedule-for-con..., Florida had a state convention yesterday and North Carolina has one today. Do we have any info on them or is that other post wrong?

washington state

5 delegates for Paul and 1 elector. The other 37 for Romney. We were outnumbered. It was mob rule and even though we asked for them to give us 3 at large delegates of the at large 10, they shut us out.

Florida has already picked its delegates

I'm not sure why they were on that list. They don't have a convention to pick delegates. They have completed their delegate selection process. Delegates there were selected by small committees composed of county leaders in each district. It is possible that a few Ron Paul delegates slipped through. But in all likelihood, all or nearly all of their delegates will be Romney supporters.

North Carolina is finishing its convention today but has finished picking delegates. They passed a slate of delegates yesterday that included supporters of all candidates, since the binding is proportional to the primary vote there. They also picked delegates over a month ago in CD caucuses. One report from a Ron Paul supporter who was there claims that 7 of the delegates (out of the 52 that have been picked) are Ron Paul supporters (6 of them bound to him). The number might be slightly higher than that, but that's a good ballpark figure.

I'm curious about this as well.

I could have sworn 3 states had conventions yesterday.

I heard we won 27 out of 46 delegates in Louisiana.
I have heard nothing about Washington.
I forget what the other state was...maybe Florida?
I have heard nothing about North Carolina.

What the hell is going on???

I think

they forgot about them after the crazy day we had in cajun country yesterday. I have seen some chatter on other posts about Washington. Apparently we had our asses handed to us there. The RP delegates failed to show up. not sure why.
