Does Ron Paul loyalists’ revolution have any ammo?

By Anjeanette Damon (contact) | Wednesday, May 9, 2012 | 2 a.m.

Confused by this weekend’s Republican convention?

No one blames you.

Yes, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won the Nevada caucuses in February, capturing 50 percent of the vote.

Why then, did this weekend’s headlines read that Texas Rep. Ron Paul won almost all of Nevada’s national delegates?


Now, they're openly mulling? Kinda.

What happens if Ron Paul actually wins?

Before we leave the subject, while the supporters of Texas Rep. Ron Paul bask in their victorious takeover of the Nevada Republican Party convention, let's ponder a question.

What if Paul wins?

Yes, it's an extreme longshot, but one Paul fans vigorously embrace. It would require supreme organizational skill, incredible lobbying and deft changes to the rules allocating delegate votes. But what if Paul fans descend on the Republican National Convention and replicate their Nevada success?

Ron Paul Is Still Racking Up Delegates — And Mitt Romney Is Finally Getting Nervous

Grace Wyler | May 9, 2012, 2:29 AM | 312 |

For several weeks I have been writing about Ron Paul's upset victories at district and state GOP conventions, and about the surprising success of his delegate strategy. Now, with Paul's delegate sweeps in Maine and Nevada, it looks like Mitt Romney and the Republican Party are finally starting to catch on to the trend.

Paul supporters swept this weekend's state GOP conventions, picking up 21 of 24 RNC delegates in Maine and 22 out of 28 delegates in Nevada. The twin victories come on the heels of Paul's surprise delegate wins at district caucuses and state conventions in Missouri, Minnesota, Colorado, and Louisiana, as well as a Paul-friendly takeover of the Alaska GOP.

Paul supporters have managed to stage these state-level coups despite significant resistance from local Establishment Republicans, many of whom are predictably reluctant to relinquish their power to the insurgents. So far, however, the Paul campaign has attributed most of the Establishment's "shenanigans" to local animosities.

Predictions in due Time...
