Gop Rule 40: A 5 State Plurality, Not A MajoritySubmitted by zooamerica on Mon, 07/02/2012 - 20:46
When asked if Ron Paul would have a 5 state majority, Doug Wead responded by citing Rule 40.
“Each candidate for nomination for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States shall demonstrate the support of a plurality of the delegates from each five (5) or more states, severally, prior to the presentation of the name of that candidate for nomination” - Republican Party Rule 40, Section B
What is a, "plurality," of delegates?
Plurality - a candidate wins more delegates than any other candidate, but less than a majority (50% + 1 vote).
I think Ron Paul is already eligible to win the republican nomination according to Republican Party Rule 40, Section B.
