Party Hacks did a stinky rules change at the 1976 State Convention intended to keep Ronald Reagan from getting any delegates. Because balloting went all night long due to the rule change that every delegate had to have a majority of the vote, Reagan wound up with only one delegate in MN. The convention was split 51% for Ford and 49% for Reagan. The Ford people let one delegate for Reagan slip in because they were too exhausted to keep up with another long balloting process.
But we got even with them in 1980!
This year, don't get mad, get even!
