SURPRISE! Ron Paul Destroyed Mitt Romney In Massachusetts This Weekend

• http://www.businessinsider.com, Grace Wyler
 Ron Paul dealt a quiet, but embarrassing, blow to Republican rival Mitt Romney this weekend, scoring an impressive delegate victory on the presumptive nominee's home turf.

The Boston Globe reports today that Paul supporters filled more than half of the delegate slots at this weekend's Massachusetts Republican district caucuses, edging out at least 16 Romney delegates for a spot at the Republican National Convention.

Paul's wins aren't likely to effect on Romney's all-but-certain coronation as the Republican nominee. Romney won the Massachusetts Republican primary with 72% of the vote, so 38 of the state's 41 RNC delegates are legally bound to vote for their former governor on the first ballot at the convention.
 
But the losses are an alarming indication that Romney's campaign organization is still woefully underdeveloped, even in the state where he served as governor, and where his campaign headquarters are located.
