What I think

The convention will most likely be "open." This means, that no candidate will have a lock on the nomination going in. Even so, there needs to be a vote from the floor, to confirm the nominee.

Since nobody will get the nomination on the first ballot, then it's open and all bets are off. Each delegation from each state can put forward whomever they like best. By having Ron Paul people in each republican delegation from each state, the chances of a Paul victory are enhanced - as opposed to Giuliani supporters, or others.

I think this is right. Not positive, however!

If nothing else, having a Paul supporter in a delegation is better than having no RP supporters!
