Ron Paul Supporters Fight for Control of Oregon DelegationSubmitted by Peace Gold Love on Sat, 08/04/2012 - 20:23
[ O r e g o n L i v e ] - Texas Rep. Ron Paul won less than 13 percent of the vote in Oregon's Republican presidential primary, but his supporters now make up at least half of the state's delegation to the national convention in Tampa later this month.
The Paul forces are also mounting official credentials challenges with the national GOP aimed at giving them full control of the delegation.
Supporters of the libertarian-minded presidential candidate face an uphill battle in their credentials fights in Oregon and three other states -- Massachusetts, Louisiana and Maine -- where they tangled with party regulars over the process of selecting delegates.
