Ron Paul National Delegate Count Now 42 or More

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 6, 2008

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – With the results of many of the “Super Tuesday” primaries and caucuses now finalized, the Ron Paul campaign is now projecting that it has at least 42 delegates to the national convention secured.

While much of the focus in yesterday’s Super Tuesday contests focused on preference poll numbers, Ron Paul caucus-goers were focused on securing delegates to the national convention. With dedicated supporters and an organization focused purely on securing delegates, the campaign has secured more delegates to the national convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul than caucus straw polls might otherwise suggest.

According to campaign projections, a minimum of 24 delegates were won in yesterday’s contests. When added to projected delegates coming from strong showings in Iowa (4), Nevada (8), Louisiana (3) and Maine (3), that brings the total delegate count to 42 delegates or more.

“Our goal has always been to walk into the national GOP convention with as many delegates as possible,” said Ron Paul 2008 campaign manager Lew Moore. “The number of delegates we won yesterday could very well be the difference in a Convention where no one has a first-ballot majority. With Dr. Paul’s home state of Texas coming up, we feel we can enter the convention with a substantial number of delegates.”

In an agreement first reported by West Virginia television station WSAZ, three Ron Paul delegates were secured through an agreement with the Mike Huckabee campaign at the West Virginia state convention early Tuesday. Ron Paul delegates to the state convention swung their sizable support to Huckabee – putting Huckabee over the top – in exchange for the delegates.

According to campaign projections from last night’s results at least 3 delegates were won in Alaska, 5 delegates were won in North Dakota, 9 delegates were won in Minnesota, and 4 delegates were won in Colorado.

Additionally the results of the Louisiana Caucus may still change in favor of Ron Paul, where an ongoing legal challenge may result in most of that state’s delegates going towards Ron Paul after state GOP officials violated their own rules to improperly put delegates from other campaigns on the ballots.

Yes thats 42 delegates the others DONT have! which betters our chances of going to a brokered convention. When we make that after the first round of voting (at the convention) lots of delegates become unbound. Meaning they go back up for grabs. We are doing better in caucus states!.
WOOHOO this is huge considering what we are up against and just how far we have come. Keep up the fight for your country, the revolution was not won in a day.

42 doesn't count for a whole lot when the other 200+ each.

If only we can sweep Washington, then we'll be close to a hundred. And hopefully Lousiana won't fail us by letting someone get 51%. There are lots of people that are not going to vote RP because of the losses, which is stupid!!!

if Huckabee gives us 4 then we might have 18...

I can see where McCain and Romney must be terrified of facing that sort of bargaining power in a "brokered convention" with only 720 and 279 respectively. Maybe this trategy should be re-thought?
