Supporters of Texas Congressman Ron Paul came out on top Saturday after a long and contentious Greene County Republican caucus meeting.
More than 1,000 people showed up at the county caucus, which is the first step of a multi-step process to elect delegates to the Republican National Convention and pick a presidential nominee. Saturday’s caucuses were marked by a series of contentious debates over procedure as attendees attempted to pick their delegates.
The participants opted to send a coalition consisting of 111 delegates backing Paul and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney to both the 7th Congressional District convention on April 21 and the state Republican convention on June 2.
