Ron Paul Secures Three Delegates in West Virginia State Convention
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 5, 2008
ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – In today’s West Virginia Republican State Convention, Republican candidate Ron Paul’s campaign secured three of the 18 national delegates up for grabs.
“Our goal is to secure as many delegates to the national GOP convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul as possible,” said Ron Paul 2008 campaign manager Lew Moore. “Securing three delegates in West Virginia is an important step in that direction. We plan on locking up more delegates before the day ends.”
In an agreement first reported by West Virginia television station WSAZ, the three Ron Paul delegates were secured through an agreement with the Mike Huckabee campaign.
Ron Paul delegates to the state convention swung their support to Huckabee – putting Huckabee over the top – after Congressman Paul was eliminated in the first round of voting. With three national delegates, Ron Paul secured 20 percent of the 18 delegates that were decided at the State Convention.
bump to show you that there is an official press release from the official HQ
so we helped the huckster? should be a 50/50 split in my book
3 delegates out of 18 isn't 20%, HQ... it's more like 16%.
3 out of 15 is 20%.
We need to get the Huckster up so that he can split the delegates enough for a brokered convention.
I hope Huck's Army recognizes this and helps us out if the situation gets reversed somewhere
