TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Congressman Ron Paul is lashing out at Republican efforts to marginalize his supporters at the upcoming party convention, telling a counter rally to stand firm because, in his words, ‘‘we will become the tent eventually.’’
The plucky GOP presidential candidate hasn’t backed presumptive nominee Mitt Romney yet. He appeared Sunday evening at a rally on the edge of Tampa.
Republicans officials have reduced the ranks of Paul delegates.
