Clark County GOP vice chairman Woody Stroupe told The Associated Press late Saturday that party officials were recounting every ballot cast in Nevada’s most populous county to ensure the accuracy of the tally.
Complete results would not be made public until every vote was counted, he said, though some 400 votes from 30 out of a total of 1,073 precincts were posted by the party.
“We’re probably going to be going all night,” Stroupe said.
Great article on Yahoo! about the media's treatment of Ron Paul and how one can learn more about Paul from the comments under the article, than the actual article:
Today marked my second time caucusing for Ron Paul, I of course caucused and delegated for Ron back in 2008. My precinct is in an upper middle class section of Las Vegas, Summerlin to be exact, so the demographics mostly consist of older if not retired, white and a substantial L.D.S population. Out of my precinct about 19 people showed up, me and another gentlemen decided to be captain and co-captain to run our precinct caucus. We introduced ourselves, passed out the information and explained the caucus and convention process...etc.
The next step was to figure out who was volunteering to attend the county convention next month, for my precinct we needed seven. Luckily it was very easy to get the 7 volunteers. The "fun" part was next, where people would volunteer to speak about their candidate. The first candidate on the list was Newt (we went in alphabetical order), not one person shared their views on Newt, so we next went to Ron Paul. Myself and two other gentlemen shared our views on Ron Paul some of the issues consisted of:
- tort reform to control health care prices
- the debt, deficits and the Fed
- national security
I of course spoke about he's the only veteran in the race, how RP never voted to increase taxes, an unbalanced budget, delivered babies.....etc.
I was a party volunteer who worked the caucus. Got there at 7 AM Sharp. There weren't enough volunteers to chair the 31 separate precincts at Silverado High Schol, so I took it upon myself to go to the 20 precinct meetings without a caucus chair to get someoneone to volunteer, and then train them on how to run a meeting. I did that in less than 5 minutes, 20 times, before returning to chair my own meeting. Bear in mind, I've never done ANY of this before.
16 people showed up for my precinct. About half of the people in the room spoke up for their candidate. Here's the results.
5 delegates from my precicnt. ALL for Paul.
I worked my precinct, people, using the votertracker system the campaign got me onto. Do the same when the show comes to your town. And NOTHING persuades like a live human being. Walk your precincts, meet your neighbors. Every American who talks with you is one who cares, regardless of what they think.
When enough who care come out of their trance, we get our country back. Be patient with the others. WE KNOW so of course we support Dr. Paul. THEY DON'T, so they don't. If they did, they would to.
America doesn't belong to the criminal bankers that have enslaved us. IT'S OURS. We do this one person at a time, with love.
Peace out from Nevada.

Official RP2012 Campaign Release:
Great Video. Ron Paul discusses in more detail his economic plans, especially how it relates to the specific problems facing Nevada.
The last 10 to 15 minutes is a Q&A session, and was the most lively portion. The questions seemed to come from the media, so hopefully this is followed by some positive coverage in the press. The crowd was wonderful, and very well receptive to his key points and answers in the Q&A.
This is also the press conference that ended with Dr. Paul presenting flowers to Mrs. Paul.
Thank you to RonPaulFilms on youtube. [34min 07sec]
CBS shuts out Paul and Santorum while referencing poll that had Ron in last place 9%.
PBS covered all 4 candidates and referenced poll w/ Ron in 3rd place at 15%. The host also had the good sense to ask Jon Rolston questions about Ron Paul, and I liked his answers
Hey guys, this is my first post. I've got something special today. At the Denver Airport I spotted Norm Macdonald. We talked a few minutes as we were delayed and I asked him to take a picture. He spotted my Ron Paul sweater and told me how much he loves Ron Paul. So...I asked him if he would say it on camera. Cool, huh!?!
Can you help me share this on twitter, facebook, email, and other high traffic websites?
Thanks guys! And remember that you can make a difference!
You know you're a Ron Paul supporter if....
.....when taking the kids to ballet, you map out your route based on the best visibility for your Ron Paul car magnet.
You'll read it 5 times.........really.......you will.
It's an hilarious article at Politico...showing the pathetic state of the Newt Gingrich campaign in Nevada.
The Ron Paul campaign expects to exceed all expectations in the Silver State.
There's less and less good news for Newt Gingrich these days, not even when he's in Las Vegas with his best billionaire buddy, Sheldon Adelson.
According to Politico, the Gingrich people couldn't put together a little 25 phone operation to work the state for a few days....
Meanwhile, Ron Paul's now famous, ongoing Phone From Home program Rocks On!
