They knew their delegate count was not enough as soon as a majority of the states had held their conventions.
They knew but they played their cards under the table and managed to play Romney all the way to the bank.
It is too bad the delegates didn't know, but to reveal this would have undermined Rand's strategy to get a speaking slot at the RNC and project our message forward to 2016.
Again, the campaign knew the delegate counts as soon as the CD and state conventions were mostly underway.
To say we hadn't lost until the RNC took place is disingenuous. Ron and Rand needed those delegates to fight on through the RNC but at this point it was all about giving Rand and our movement a speaking slot to propel us forward strong into 2016. That is all.
