Tampa Tribune: "Romney's Greatest Fear" is Ron Paul Nomination.

Weeks after it was widely reported in the media that Ron Paul had lost his "last chance" to be eligible for the Republican nomination at the Nebraska state convention, Tampa Bay Online, the online subsidiary of the Tampa Tribune, has reported that a movement to nominate Ron Paul at the upcoming Republican National Convention may be "Romney's greatest fear."

"Romney's greatest fear could be a movement to nominate Paul from the floor of the convention, which could happen if five state delegations line up behind him."

This follows up a report in The New American in May which said of Paul's state-by-state delegate strategy:

"The Republican Establishment is afraid of Ron Paul and events that took place at party nominating conventions from Maine to Alaska proved that it’s for good reason."

Although major media outlets reported last month that Paul's prospects for eligibility for nomination "ended" in Nebraska, with Paul failing to secure pluralities in at least five states, a count of Paul's victories show Nevada, Maine, Minnesota, Louisiana, Iowa, Washington, Colorado, and Missouri in Paul's column. Louisiana is in a legal battle and the Maine delegation is in a fight with the state GOP chairman. Also possibly in Paul's column, but locked in political combat, are Oklahoma, and Oregon.

Paul campaign spokesman Jesse Benton told the Tampa Tribune reporter that "Dr. Paul will not seek to be nominated from the floor," language which is often intended to deflect speculation as to a candidate's intentions, without committing to a course.

Moreover, a recent email to Paul supporters from the campaign indicates that Dr. Paul is still very much in the race, saying: "Ron Paul’s number-one goal for the RNC is making sure his delegates and alternates who deserve to be seated in Tampa are credentialed." ..

Yes, but we have learned the hard way, who's counting the vote...and it's not us.

Sorry, that's not a shot at you! I've become a wee bit cynical of late when it comes to the GOP and the shenagans they are willing to pull to "win".

You mean games they pull to lose... ROMNEY! I have to laugh Fox people are all more excited over Ryan than mitts... Go figure that makes about as much sense as voting for Obama because of Biden. I truly think they have put the weakest ticket together they could so they can hand it back to Obama...

I believe Mass. did not win a plurality though we swept Romeny's home congressional district

Alaska, best understanding won 6 delegates, not a plurality.

Please link me to sources if this is incorrect, we need to get this straight.
