Jefferson County WV goes for RON PAUL

CHARLES TOWN — Jefferson County Republicans voted Saturday at the Charles Town Library for 17 of the 32 delegates who will represent county party-members on Feb. 5 at the state Republican convention...

...Presidential hopeful Ron Paul was the apparent beneficiary of Saturday’s election. Seventeen of the 30 candidates for Jefferson County delegates have already committed to giving their first round of votes in Charleston to delegates who have committed to support Paul at the RNC. No other presidential candidate has more than three of the possible county delegates committed to him or her.

“A lot of people have gone to the courthouse to change their registration so they can be delegates for Ron Paul,” said Anne Dungan, the chairwoman of the Jefferson County Republican Executive Committee.

Actually we did not win 17 delegates we only had 17 on the

ballot. The hand count went against us due to a large number of anybody but Ron Paul votes. The thing is that because so many RP people filed for delegates we were guaranteed 7 which beats anyone else. We are hoping that the on line votes will give us the full 17 that we could get.

The turnout was very light really although heavier than the neighboring more heavily populated county (Berkley).

What I came away with is that a hundred thousand like minded people committed for the long haul (think decades) can take over the Republican party. Taking over a party is much easier than starting one. We need need to stay together and conquer.

Not yet over...We still need more votes!

I posted this for the digg article as well:

That is actually me in the picture there...the article (and description above) isn't exactly accurate. This was just the Jefferson County Convention in WV. Jefferson County gets 17 delegates to the state convention on Feb 5th. 32 people filed to be delegates and of those 32, 17 were declared for Ron Paul. The county convention plus the online voting will determine which 17 out of the 32 will go to the state convention. We still need to make up some ground with the online votes, but we had a good showing yesterday. The second highest candidate with declared delegates was Fred Thompson with 3. Many people voted for everyone BUT the Ron Paul delegates even though we were the majority.

Actually

16 of the 32 were guaranted to go. The electon was over the other 17. We were voting to narrow the field of 30 at large delegates to only 17. If only a few more supporters (14) had come out we would not have to worry about the on line votes. I did everything but beg people.

County speaks again!

Awesome !

This is so nice to hear...

Interesting, RP also won

Interesting, RP also won Jefferson County in Iowa(reportedly in part due to lots of different pro-RP ads in the newspapers there). Now he wins Jefferson County in WV. Coincidence?

It's a subtle message from heaven.

RP the best thing since Jefferson.

Mathew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Danger: Two Cautions

Now that this is out, you can bet that forces will try to stop this from happening elsewhere. So be on the look-out for that.

The key will be to make the Establishment candidates so scared they come in and try to strong-arm the locals, causing resentment. Our job will be to be respectful and reasonable to the locals so they don't blame us for that and take our side.

It's basically the same technique Ron Paul used in the last debate: make them crazy, make them ask stupid questions, make them laugh like juveniles, and give wise answers, calmly and realistically.

let's put this "electability" issue to bed

if memory serves, jefferson county is heavily populated with military families. either way, i sincerely hope ron paul makes a stronger and louder statement about his overwhelming support by people in active duty. the dems can't make the same claim and it sets him above the other gop candidates.

Way to go WV!

You guys are AWESOME!

Excellent

You all continue to amaze me for:

"These are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it Now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict the more glorius the triumph."

Jefferson County Rocks!!

The first One Percent

It's 17 delegates out of 1446 total at the convention, so that's only slightly more than 1%, but it's a darn good start.

Note that there are 55 counties in WV, and Jefferson County is mostly farms and bedroom community for government employees who commute to DC.

If you are not OUTRAGED, you're not paying attention!

WAY TO GO!!

Lets hear it for Jefferson County!!!

Everybody needs to follow Jefferson County

Get involved and become a delegate. If we can't win the popular vote, we can win the election by becoming delegates. Everyone can show up at straw polls and vote online but I want to see everyone show up when it counts, The RNC. We can win this fight. Go to www.ronpaul2008.com and click on the link for states, go to your state and find out how to become a delegate. This is the most important thing you can do to get Ron Paul elected.

THANK YOU :)

I hope to see this reported in the media but I will not hold my breath.

it WAS in the media - Local Newspaper

Please click on the link - it's an article complete with photo in the Martinsburg Journal which has substantial circulation in four WV counties (Hampshire Morgan, Berkeley, and Jefferson), as well as Winchester Virginia and Hagerstown, MD.

Wonderful

news..I am going to the GOP meeting here on 2/4. Costs $10 and an application to apply to be a delegate, and must be accomplished by 3/10. I hope I can secure it, at least on this local level.(AR)

Thank you Jefferson County.

Now would you please go knock on the doors of some of your neighboring counties and wake them up to Ron Paul?

GEAUX RON PAUL 2012.
