NEW EMAIL From JOHN TATE regarding Confernece Call

I’m very sorry I wasn’t able to make the conference call last night.

As you know, we’re embroiled in a crucial credentials committee fight over some of our delegations, and I had an important meeting yesterday evening I had to attend.

Today and tomorrow are big days for these fights, as we are in the last step of the process. And while we are likely to lose, we are doing everything we can to fight these challenges.

The good news is, in two states, we were able to work with in-state leaders to get more Ron Paul delegates seated for the convention.

Regarding last night’s call, it’s been brought to my attention one of our staffers misspoke regarding the nomination last night on the call saying Ron Paul “would not accept the nomination.”

Of course, if handed the nomination, Dr. Paul would gladly accept.

But unfortunately, we will not have the five states necessary to put Ron Paul’s name into nomination. Nor do we have the numbers necessary for Dr. Paul to win a convention floor fight if nominated.

As far as the Vice Presidential nomination is concerned, Dr. Paul has indicated to us that he does not wish to serve in this position.

I hope this clears up any confusion regarding last night’s call or our campaign’s strategy heading into next week.
