Ron Paul Wins Minnesota, Colorado Delegates to Republican National Convention

Reports the Examiner:

Ron Paul achieved consequential delegate wins in Colorado and Minnesota today, affirming his delegate-attainment strategy and auguring a prominent role for Paul at the Republican National Convention in Tampa.


"Ron Paul’s victories today declare his delegate-attainment strategy to be a success and they demonstrate that the media and Washington pundits are undercounting his delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa,’ said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Manager John Tate.

“Taken together, these victories and those yet to happen forecast a prominent role for Ron Paul at the RNC.  They also signal that the convention will feature a spirited discussion over whether conservatism will triumph over the status quo, all in relation to the end game of defeating President Obama,” added  Tate.


 In Minnesota, Ron Paul supporters swept the three district conventions that occurred yeterday, winning nine of nine delegates to the national convention
.

In Colorado, Paul supporters won 12 delegates and 13 alternate delegates.

  1. I cant believe the disillusionment of ron paul supporters. He will never be Republican candidate. Period end of story. The people arnt ready. I know its hard to except because we all prob hang out with like minded people. Once you leave the 'Libertarian' circle (which is very small) people look at ron paul as a conspiracy theorist and crazy old man. Hate saying this but talk to average joe intellectual on the street. He cant imagine a word without the Federal reserve and income taxes. If ron paul becomes repub candidate ill eat my shoes.

    1. why don't you educate yourself before making a fool of yourself...tell me one thing...why do we need secret bankers counterfeiting our currency and then charging us interest for every fake note they print? We could have the treasury dept. do it without the debt...or better yet we could follow the constitution and back our currency with sound assets like gold and silver...allow me to educate you..

    2. I think you misunderstood me. I am a ron paul supporter. However i am also a realist and pragmatist.

      Even if what you say is true that about the 40% doesnt mean any thing. We all know ron paul supporters are die hard and they come out i give them that. This is like 2008 all over again man. I couldnt believe the deranged ron paul supporters who thought he would acually be 08 repub candinate. The libertarian movement is small. Thats a fact. Polls show it, ron paul not being out front shows it, and personal experience confirms it. Ive only meet one libertarian in my life. JUST ONE. Even tea party people support newt and romney. Very small amount support Ron paul. Im sorry to burst your bubble. I would be willing to bet my entire life saving that ron paul will not be the repub presdential candinate come 2012.

    3. Hey little feet. I expect to see you on youtube eating your shoes. I dont expect the average Joe to be as well informed using complicated ideas like commmon sense. That is why it is up to us illusionist to help them see the wrong in their indoctrination process. I am going to go ahead and assume your somewhat smart but just lacking balls to get on the side of right and standing up. So if you have nothing smart to say. Bow your head like your told and keep moving and stop trolling.

    4. You don't get it, Paul supporters have no dillusions about the corrupt establishmnent that has done everything to disrail his campaign and most realize a victory is not likely. Yet we are winning by forcing the establishment to be exposed for the corrupt machine it is that forces there candidate on the people and gives them no real choice. He also has injected real issues that never would have been discussed and forced the other "chosen" candidates to address these issues. No real movement believes change will come all at once, this is a war of attrition and he has already won on that basis as we continue to build a new force to challenge the status quo and slowly change it especially with the support of young people. Paul has much more real support than Romney, most will vote for Romney because they are like sheep sold he will be the only one that can beat Obama, not because he is well liked. He isn't any more accepted as a real leader than he was when he lost to McCain its just the establishment has rolled him out this time. Ron Paul will have many more delegates than the media has portrayed once again exposing there lies, whithout which he would have done even much better. The support he has gotten in light of the demonization, ignoring, etc is astonishing.

  2. If you don't vote for him he can't win, if you do vote for him he can we just proved that in Minnesota! Mitt Romney doesn't have as many delegates as the media lies to you about... for example on CNN.com they have 38 of 40 delegates going to Romney even though thats impossible being we haven't had our state convention yet. Romeny's lead is built on a house of cards and if he is forced to prove where he stands it will collapse as Ron starts get delegates from the caucus states, and other REAL states ie texas and California come in to play where he legitimately leads!

  5. Speaking as a delegate from one of the conventions yesterday, I had the pure enjoyment of watching this all unfold. We've been told before that we are a grass roots minority, but I think we demonstrated that Dr. Paul's message is rapidly catching fire and spreading. WE WERE the majority yesterday, and our voices were heard and people are beginning to wake up.

  6. "The libertarian circle (which is very small)" I laugh out loud at this statement. At my district convention, this past Saturday, we owned the majority. 40% JUST for Ron Paul. 60% SHARED by 3 other candidates! I will send you some honey mustard for those shoes!

  8. Ithink too many Ron Paul supporters are living inside a bubble. I'm constantly hearing how Ron Paul supporters energize the youth vote and that he is gaining alot of delegates, but I never seem to be able to get actual numbers on it. Youth vote? More than Obama? Or how about Romney? The state of the union is not as rosy as you think if Obama is getting the Youth vote.

    What is the "true" delegate count from Ron Paul's point of view. How far is he from Romney's count?

  9. Williamson County TX, the center of the conservative universe, added "End The FED" to our platform yesterday! Unusually powerful small liberty bubble circle thingy!

  10. In two separate nationwide polls (February and April), open to ALL voters and not just GOP voters, Ron Paul beats Mitt Romney and Obama. Have you seen how many people attend Mitt Romney events? Usually in the low hundreds. Ron Paul fills every venue, night after night, with thousands. Again, if you're a doubter, so the research. Funny how we have one candidate outpolling Obama, yet he gets second billing, while the 'presumptive' GOP candidate gets the headline. Paul has also won Minnesota and Colorado...now that the dust has settled, it's treated as non-news. He just needs three more state delegate majorities to be on the ballot in Tampa. So if you're a Ron Paul supporter who's already quitting on him, you really aren't a Ron Paul supporter. It's never over until it's over. Let Freedom ring.

  12. THE RON PAUL SUPPORTERS CREED
    Here is your deal:

    Pay attention Republican Party and Voters.

    I am a Ron Paul supporter. This election season, no candidate will
    get my vote for the Office of President of the United States of America
    except for Ron Paul.There will be no exceptions. If he does not win the
    nomination, I will write his name on the ballot.

    No amount of slick talking, flip-flopping, wooing, cajoling,
    threatening, or condescending will persuade me to vote for any other
    contender for that office.

    You don't want to admit it, but you know that the Republican Party
    cannot beat Obama without me, a Ron Paul supporter. It's long past time
    you admit it.

    You and I have conflicting goals. I will only cast a vote for
    liberty, for peace, for small government, for fiscal sanity and respect
    for the Constitution of the United States and adherence to the oath of
    office of the Presidency. You however are content merely to vote for
    whatever Republican the GOP leadership and the media approve of.

    I will not move. I cannot be persuaded. You cannot win without me.

    I am not here to convince you that Ron Paul's positions are superior.
    I am not here to convince you that his foreign policy is in line with
    traditional conservatism. I am not here to convince you that his
    understanding of economics put everyone else in Washington to shame. I
    am not even here to convince you that the positions of the other
    candidates are not materially different than Obama.

    No, I don't need to do any of that. I only need to tell you that
    without me, you have lost. If you do not vote for Ron Paul in your
    Primary or Caucus, you are already defeated. If you fail to nominate Ron
    Paul to be the Republican candidate for President, Barack Hussein Obama
    will serve a second term.

    This is not blackmail.This is not a threat. This is a simple statement of fact.

    I stand firm and I will not accept anything less.Ron Paul 2012

    ~If you agree with this post this on other sites and encourage others
    to help make it go viral so the message is clear to the GOP.
