While many believe that Mitt Romney will be the GOP nominee this year, it has been very interesting to watch over the past week as Texas Congressman Ron Paul has won several states in the delegation process leading many to ask if there is more to come, and could there be a brokered convention. In Romney’s home state of Massachusetts Paul clearly stole his thunder and stepped into the spotlight once again.
Though Mitt Romney had assembled a team of delegates to support him at the nominating convention in Tampa, that didn’t exactly pan out the way he thought it would. When the Republicans in Massachusetts, the state that Romney formerly governed, went to their caucuses, they didn’t elect Romney’s choices, but rather went after Ron Paul’s.
According to the Boston Globe, less than half of the twenty-seven delegates chosen by Romney actually won, including some big names.
While the media continues to black out Ron Paul, including the fact that they will not even mention that the GOP race right now is actually still a two man race, not a one man race, the Paul campaign continues forward, keeping its eye on the ball and that is what it has always done. The Campaign for Liberty has always said the message is most important and the strategy is in the delegation process.
Ron Paul picked up 16 delegate slots out of 19 in the Massachusetts congressional district selection processes.
It appears many of the delegates from Massachusetts have the same sentiments as this Marine veteran below:
