USA Today, MSNBC and Rachel Maddow show all reporting that Nebraska is a must win for the Paul campaign in order for Congressman Paul to get his name into nomination at the RNC in August.
From USA Today:
"Under Rule 40, Section B in the Republican National Committee's rule book, a presidential candidate must demonstrate the support of a "plurality of the delegates from five or more states" to get his or her name entered for nomination at the convention.
Paul already has a plurality of delegates from Iowa, Maine, Minnesota and Louisiana. Nebraska is the last state that will hold its convention for delegates."
The only problem with this... Congressman Paul already has a plurality of delegates in more than 5 states... in fact, it is my understanding he has the plurality in 6.
Colorado Paul 18, Romney 16, Santorum 2
Iowa Paul 23, Romney 2
Louisiana Paul 27, Romney 19
Maine Paul 21, Romney 3
Minn Paul 32, Romney 8
Nevada Paul 22, Romney 3
