Ron Paul wins 3 National Delegates from West Virginia

At the West Virginia Republican state convention today, Ron Paul received 10% and came in fourth. He was dropped from the second ballot.

At that point, the Paul people made a deal with the Huckabee people to get 3 of the 18 national delegates if they threw their second-ballot votes to Huckabee. The strategy worked and Huckabee won 52%. Ron Paul will receive 3, and Huckabee will receive 15 of West Virginia's 18 delegates.

The Romney campaign is crying foul.

Ron Paul Endorsed By Alabama Republican Assembly

The Alabama Republican Assembly endorsed Ron Paul at their state convention today in Birmingham.

The endorsement required a 2/3rd majority of registered delegates. Ron Paul received the 2/3rd on the first ballot. Mike Huckabee came in second. Convention chair Elaine Little noted that, with the crowded field, it was unusual that an endorsement would be won on the first ballot.

The group also held a straw poll that was open to the public. The winner of the straw poll was Ron Paul, with 81%.

Delegate Count: MSM Gets it Wrong Again

Ron Paul came in #2 in the Nevada Presidential preference primary, with 14%, just ahead of McCain.

However, the important vote today in Nevada was for delegates to the state convention.

CNN and AP are incorrectly reporting national delegate counts based on the presidential poll, which is non-binding.

No national delegates have been chosen or allocated for Nevada. According to Tony Rosa, the nation's leading authority on state primary rules:
