yeah, basically

The rule book states that candidates' committees have a say in who gets to be their delegate, provided they can get approval from a majority of the allocation committee. The delegates are bound by state law and by state party rules to vote for Romney. The delegates had to make a pledge to vote FOR Romney on the first ballot, but clearly there are some who don't intend to do that. This is a play to make sure that the delegates honor their contract. If they aren't going to, then there's just cause to replace them. If they truly are going to vote for Romney then vote their conscience on future ballots, then there probably isn't cause to remove them - since they would not be breaking any rules at that point. The Paul delegates are going to somehow have to convince the allocation committee that they are going to follow the state rules. Will they be able to?
