RNC Confirms Ron Paul Will Be Up For Nomination

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.

Does this mean the repub party has been running a campaign of fright tactics (?) running compulsive liar Mittens so that the party would sigh with relief to get RP back?

Hhmmm ... boy the repubs sure are stuck with some real turkeys - Hey?

Do you think compulsive lieing is somehow worse than the calculated lies that Obama spews? Our Potemkin President's fictional biography is a good place to start your investigation of Barry Soeroto's false story.

Unfortunately, Romney is a lock.

The Bain/Tax/Adelson scandals may sink the old boy yet...
