Paul Campaign Banking on Chaos to Capture Nomination
Because winning is all that matters.
After 25 state election contests, Ron Paul remains without a single win. But the Texas congressman isn’t giving up hope of capturing the Republican nomination.
Aides say Paul is banking on his organization to help him pick up a plurality or even a majority of delegates in several state conventions, including Maine, Washington State, Alaska, Nevada, North Dakota and Iowa.
And as the campaigning continues, there are signs that Paul supporters are willing to make the nominating process messy.
They’re accused of muddying county conventions in Colorado and Iowa last weekend.
In Iowa, a half dozen counties reported disruptions during conventions. The most egregious example occurred in Polk County, where Paul supporters illegally tried to become delegates.
‘They were abrasive, offensive, and self-centered,’ said Kevin McLaughlin, GOP chairman in Polk County.
A true fit to the GOP efforts this election season. This is the ugliest primary I can remember in some time. At least on the national level.
