The state party broke up its original convention in April when supporters of Ron Paul hijacked the proceedings and tried to elect delegates for their candidate to the national GOP convention in September. Party officials tried to reconvene on July 26, but they needed a quorum of 675 and received only 300 RSVPs, according to local reports.

Nearly all of the comments are in defense of Ron Paul and his supports, and they are upset with the author of this article, as they should be!

Brad Haynes, of the Wall Street Journal, claims that Ron Paul supporters hijacked the Nevada state convention, when they made up the majority of those who showed up! It was the GOP party of Nevada itself who hijacked the process by ending the convention without sending delegates to the national convention. Now they want to select delegates with private conference calls!

I added my own comment, and I invite you to as well.
