TAMPA — Though Colorado Ron Paul delegates know they don't have a path to victory, it doesn't mean they will fake admiration for Mitt Romney at the Republican National Convention.
Of Colorado's 36 delegates, eight stopped short of supporting Romney and his running mate Rep. Paul Ryan in a voice vote Monday at a delegation meeting.
"We hold our principles and our constitution higher than our party's success," said 23-year-old Jeremy Strand, a Paul supporter from Lakewood and a delegate. "All of us would agree that he (Romney) is not exactly a Republican."
