RNC Penalyzing NH and Early Primary States
Wasn't sure if this had been mentioned. I wasn't here yesterday and this place moves so fast. Has this been discussed already?
I read an article in the paper last night that said the RNC was moving to take away half the delegates from any state that held Primaries before Feb. This included NH, South Carolina, Michigan, Florida,etc. Including of course most of RP's early target states and a couple others.
Anuzis ( remember him) from Michigan was quoted as saying he was confident all the delgates would ultimately be counted and attend the convention. The reasoning was that the eventual nominee would insist on all delegates being counted. Mitt Romney said that IF he won, he would insist on all delegates being counted.
This paper was in Ohio and the Ohio GOP seemed rather delighted about having a better chance of determining the nominee.
It's not something I worry about. If it really came down to restricting delegates to prevent a Ron Paul win, it would be inconsequential. Broad support is independent of any RNC rules. If Ron Paul gets that support, things will work themselves out.
It's not worth worrying about. Concentrate on building support.
