RNC Rules Confirm: Ron Paul has the “potential” to be nominated in Tampa

by Mason Buran, Examiner.com:

The Republican National Convention is quickly approaching (August 26th). For over the past year, avid Ron Paul supporters have won delegate spots in various state conventions across the country. Through this hard-work, Ron Paul will officially be allowed to be nominated for the nominee of the Republican Party.

For the past three days, Ben Swann (Fox19 Cincinnati) has been in contact with a Republican Rules Committee member. In order for a candidate to be elected for the Republican Party nomination, the candidate must have a plurality in five or more states. If by rule, binding and non-binding policies are applied to delegates, it would still not affect the process of voting for placement of a candidate’s name into the potential nominee ballot. Presidential hopeful Ron Paul does have a plurality in five or more states (Nevada, Maine, Minnesota, Louisiana, and Iowa). This means that Ron Paul will be eligible for nomination on August 26th in Tampa Bay.

The Ron Paul Revolution is planning on amassing 100,000+ supporters to Tampa in order to celebrate Paul’s 30+ year career in American politics. However, the Republican National Committee senses pressure from the Paul supporters. The RNC has attempted to block access in order to make the convention as exclusive as possible.

    Shoddy reporting. There is nothing in this article to suggest or prove that the RNC CONFIRMED that Ron Paul will be up for nomination aside from Ben talking to someone in the RNC. There is far more at play here. RNC confirmation would come in the form of an official statement. I’m a RP supporter, but this is misleading.

    I’ll be writting in Ron Paul on the ballot regardless of what happens in Tampa. It won’t make a damned difference wheather Obama or Romney wins. Either way we’re screwed.
