Ron Paul Delegate Deals Reached, Report CNN and Associated Press

The RNC has agreed to seat 17 Ron Paul delegates from Louisiana, which has been a major point of contention between the Paul campaign and the Romney campaign. In addition, the RNC will also seat additional Paul delegates from Massachusetts, ending the controversy in that state.

Associated Press had more, later, treating the Louisiana deal as done, with Massachusetts close and Maine still in the air:

The Texas congressman will get 17 of the Louisiana's 46 delegates in the compromise, said Charlie Davis, who served as Paul's campaign chairman in Louisiana. The rest of the state's delegates are expected to support Mitt Romney, the party's presumptive nominee.

A Republican National Committee official confirmed the agreement. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, was not authorized to publicly discuss the negotiations.....

"I think it's a huge win for our campaign because it showed what happened in Louisiana was wrong," Davis said by phone from Tampa. "It's been a long uphill battle, but the overwhelming evidence was on our side."

What is the outcome of the Oklahoma delegates?

Haven't heard anything on Oklahoma.

Davis should be removed from leadership

Davis should be removed from leadership

Sooo that means we received no delegates from LA convention?

Arevthey all from the district conventions? That is a crappy deal.

Disregard

Never mind.

Vote stealing

No campaign owns delegates, they were elected by their States, and are not bound to any candidate.

I'm surprised to see election fraud going on. As if the delegates actually elected and the people that put their representatives there have no choice in the matter.

This banana republic farce gets more ridiculous every day.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Really, a smart lawyer could

Really, a smart lawyer could use this to file criminal charges. You can't interfere in State run elections that way. It's illegal in every State and under federal law.

How could any delegate or voter accept Soviet style manipulation of elected delegates like this? Will we? I sure hope not.

That's No Deal, Instead That's Just

the RNC saying they're putting some extra grease on it so it maybe won't hurt as bad. I reluctantly admit that this time it's fortunate that I'm too broke to get to Tampa and participate in the festivities because I've had a feeling that I might end up being so emotional and angry, I don't want to think about what may happen with me. I also only went as far as being a state delegate. I greatly respect all of the RP national delegates able to control themselves considering the bullsh*t.

Makes me wonder was this a trick

By Ron Paul to make the establishment think they have won by not letting us win 5 states?
But in the back channels Ron Paul takes 5 stealth states we are not aware Of?
It's like saying here I have these states dangling it in front of the enemy.
Then at the last minuate it's a bait and switch here I didn't need these states anyway because I have these 5
Giving Ron Paul the nomination

assuming that this is just a trick...

How does it give Paul the nomination?

Because If 5 other states stand up

For Paul like his home state and maybe california then that would give more states the incentive to turn on Romney.

Texas, maybe....Don't even

Texas, maybe....Don't even think about California, it's been a lost cause since the primary. Have you even been paying attention about California?

But if that's the plan...
