Now, the decision is in the hands of the RNC Credentials Committee, which will hear the challenge one week before the GOP convention in August. Whatever the Committee decides, the case holds significant implications for several other states where Paul supporters are issuing challenges to the state Republican Party due to delegate fraud. In Massachusetts and Oregon, Paul is planning similar challenges.
The larger issue here is that a candidate needs the majority of delegates in at least five states in order to enter their name into the nomination at the Convention. While Ron Paul holds the majority in three states (Iowa, Minnesota, and Maine), he needs two more in order to gain official recognition.
If supporters lead a successful challenge in at least two of Massachusetts, Oregon, or Louisiana, Ron Paul supporters will have a very different convention in August."
Other states are also planning challenges.
