Ron Paul’s Delegate Strategy May Finally Be Working

It looks as though Ron Paul will be winning more delegates in early primary states after all. The campaign’s strategy to target delegates and encourage supporters to attend party conventions may be finally paying off.

On Saturday April 14, Colorado held the state’s Republican convention, while Minnesota held three district conventions. In both cases, Ron Paul won more delegates than expected.

According to a Washington Times Communities contributor, Paul supporters and Santorum supporters formed a coalition to elect a “Conservative Unity” slate of delegates to the convention in Tampa and according to John King, a Ron Paul delegate, 13 of the 20 that were elected as part of the coalition are Paul supporters.  Ron Paul also looks to have done done quite well to the north of Colorado.

In Minnesota’s three district conventions, Ron Paul supporters rallied and elected 9 of 9 delegates to the national convention.

But it doesn’t end there. In the wake of the aftermath of the St. Charles County caucus meltdown in which a couple of Ron Paul supporters were arrested, the Paul campaign looks poised to do well in Missouri. On April 10, St. Charles Republicans took another stab at the caucus and Paul ended up winning the third largest county in the state.

Add that to his string of attendance record breaking rallies culminating with 8,500 plus in California, and it would seem as though Ron Paul is still in it to win it.
