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.
