Paul, Romney backers gird for potential rumble at GOP convention

Nebraska Republicans are braced for a potential rumble this weekend, as devoted Ron Paul supporters threaten to take over the party's state convention on behalf of the Texas libertarian and his presidential bid.

Tension surrounding the state convention Saturday in Grand Island comes as Paul supporters mount a last-ditch effort in Nebraska to ensure that Paul gets to speak at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.
