Does Santorum also have "plurality?"

Is he up for nomination on the ballot at the convention as well? Or does he need to "re-enter" the race?

Are we counting

the voices in his head?

Santorum and Gingrich are bought and paid for by Romney

Perhaps they might not be if they saw Dr. Paul attack Romney the same way he attacked them?

Did that ever dawn on anybody? If Dr. Paul really wanted Santorum/Gingrich voters he would have stood up to Romney the second Santorum dropped out.

It's over and Ron Paul made sure of it!

Sort of

He could have enough states to have his name up for nomination, just like Romney and Huckabee did in 2008. He has no interest in having his name nominated, though, for the same reasons that Romney and Huckabee didn't in 2008 - the race is over, he supports the winner, and just having 5 states does not give you any chance of winning when someone else has 40. If Romney drops out, Santorum will jump back in. If Romney stays in, he will win the vote in Tampa by a huge margin, no matter who else has their name up for nomination.

I like the

santorum jumping back in idea. that scenerio is better than facing romney.

Label Jars, Not People!

Our Delegates...

Need to know all the facts before going to Tampa...Santorum could be needed on the first or second ballot...

Looks like he has 4

He might be close enough to pull it off like RP. I actually would love him to be in the convention because we need him to peel his delegates away from Romney. The danger is that allot of people relate to him and he could steal the nomination from Both Romney and RP.

According to Wikipedia.

Santorum has six States and Dr. Paul has three. This means they say that Santorum will be on the ballot and have a speaking slot while Dr. Paul will not.

This does not agree with other information I have read/heard /seen. e.g. They are not including Nevada, Louisiana or Colorado so I am not sure where they are pulling their numbers from. Dr. Paul himself has said he has 300 delegates while Wikipedia is listing him with only 72.

My belief is that RP has the plurality in sufficient States to be nominated.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

I don't think he has to reenter but I am not sure he has 5 state

states anymore. Ron took a lot of the delegates the media presumed he'd get, and Romney took a lot more. It is an interesting question.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

I heard any delegate can put someone up for nomination.

So if in Arkansas, the delegates are supposedly bound for Romney, they can still put Santorum or even Ron Paul up for nomination. Don't know if this is true. Maybe someone else will clarify me.
