Ron Paul May Cost Mitt Romney Nevada

Though Nevada took a turn to the right in the 2010 elections, the state increasingly looks out of reach for Mitt Romney. One reason for his troubles, according to Heidi Smith, a member of the Republican executive board from Washoe County: "The Ron Paul People…"
And Smith says the Ron Paul people are a small but powerful minority and that the rest of the party wasn't prepared for them.
They were able to take over Clark County's Republican organization, that's where Las Vegas is, and then the state party. Washoe County, in the north, is where Reno is and together, the two counties account for about 93 per cent of Nevada's population of 2.7 million people.
How is anyone surprised? Ron Paul was always going to be popular in a state that cares about its precious metals.

While I believe it is Mitt

While I believe it is Mitt Romney who is costing Mitt Romney this race, it would be fitting for Paul to cost Romney Nevada, as Romney immorally cost Paul the right he earned at the convention.

Unenthusiastic Fundraising

"Unenthusiastic fundraising on the part of a Paul-controlled state GOP sounds like a perfectly plausible explanation for Mitt Romney losing Nevada if Mitt Romney himself wasn't already a perfect explanation for why Romney is losing Nevada."

"Its easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled."
