I noticed this happened in Maine a week or two before the convention. State party leaders pushed back the deadline to become an eligible delegate. They must have taken a guess at our strength from adding up numbers from the town caucuses. I'm guessing they knew they were losing, so they invite anyone else to become a delegate. I don't thunk they've allowed that before. Simultaneously, they do a press release to the local neocon news station that ron Paul may win the state. This motivated old party folks to get out of theirs seats and come fight. As you know, this establishment effort made it very close.
So... you'll know if you have the numbers to win. Be aware of the state party inviting all late comers to become delegates. If they make nosuch move, then they must think they are positioned to win..
Nothing beats showing up with as many warm bodies as you can. Call in all favors. No excuses. All must attend. Stay hydrated, bring an energy bar, and be prepared to sit. GO GET EM
