Ron Paul supporters capture majority of Nevada’s national delegates

Delegates to national GOP convention must vote in first round according to caucus results but are free to vote for others if there is a second round

Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul succeeded in capturing the majority of Nevada's national delegates early Sunday, overwhelming likely nominee Mitt Romney with an organized contingent who easily took control of the state convention.

Although Republican rules require national delegates to vote according to the results of the Feb. 4 caucuses-- which Romney won with 50 percent of the vote-- 22 of the actual people going to the national convention in Tampa, Fla. are Paul loyalists.

Nevada delegates are bound by the caucus results on the first round of balloting in Tampa, but in the unlikely event of a second round of balloting, they can vote for their favored candidate.
