True or False......Delegate question (Texas)
True Or Flase?
Ok I have 35 delegates open in my precicnt. If we get 20 delegates for Ron Paul, 7 for Sandy, 5 for mit and 3 for newt. Can I call for a discussion and ask that only us 20 go since we are the majority (50%) , get someone to 2nd me and then get a vote? If we get more then half of the vote then we get the whole slate??

I'm assuming you are in a county having precinct conventions. The delegates you are choosing are to go to the next convention level (county or state senate district) on April 14th or 21st. Your delegate list has room for 35 delegates and 35 alternates. Try to have BEFORE the convention, a list of 35 Ron Paul supporters who will go to the county/SD convention for your proposed slate (note that they do not necessarily have to be present at the precinct convention to be on the list, but credentialing them later will probably be easier if they are there. plus, you'll need their votes)

Moral; get your people and get them to the convention.
