Ben Swann: Three Facts About A Candidate's Name Being Placed Into Nomination at RNC

•, by JeffTS

I have been in touch with a member of the RNC Rules committee over the past 4 days and have been able to confirm a few FACTS about the nomination process.

1. For a candidate's name to be placed into nomination at the RNC you DO need a plurality of delegates from 5 states.

2. Binding and Non-binding distinctions DO NOT have an affect on nominating a candidates name. If "binding" is allowable by rule, (it is not) it would only pertain to a vote taken on the nomination, not the process of placing a name in nomination.

3. The Ron Paul campaign HAS the majority of delegates in the following 5 states: Nevada, Maine, Minnesota, Louisana, Iowa. He MAY have the majority in Massachusetts and Colorado

You gotta wake up to reality! If you go home and plant tomatoes, you are doing something useful to yourself and to the country, rather than waste your time here.  Nothing is going to work for Ron Paul, who the public knows is a nuisance candidate that the GOP does not want. GOP management sees to it that the Republican Party either stays away from him or keep him out if the Republicans want to win the presidential election. He is not only a Libertarian the GOP rejects, but a bad luck to the Republican Party where die-hard Republicans believe he does not belong.
