Ron Paul Wins NV Straw PollSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Mon, 10/15/2007 - 10:01
Although many of the Republican presidential teams had surrogates representing them at the conference, Mitt Romney and Duncan Hunter were the only candidates to speak at the conference, and the victor himself was not there.
So let me get this straight: Mitt Romney, who did go to the straw poll and made a speech, lost to Ron Paul, who was not in attendance, by a margin of 33% to 16%. But note the headline of the story - it is not, "Ron Paul Wins," but "Mitt Romney Loses." Ha.
Amazing none-the-less. Nevada is an early primary state. We can win!
