Losing delegatesSubmitted by Westfall on Wed, 07/25/2012 - 06:41
In my state, we lost another delegate.
We won 6 delegate spots, but now we only have 4. One got mad at "politics" and just quit, the other made it very clear he was not going to vote for Mitt Romney under any circumstances (he was planning on abstaining), and our State coordinator, Monica Serrano, still supported him on our slates, who didn't really screen us delegates at all (she even picked me--what was SHE thinking?)
After the election, she suddenly decided that we all *MUST* vote for Mitt Romney, and pressured him to sign pledges do so. He resigned to avoid having to vote for Mitt Romney (Our state RP coordinator lead him to believe this to be true).
We have a problem of people passionately joining, getting the support of the people in this movement to take key positions, and then dropping out, and this is proving to be very harmful to our cause.
