from another thread..

Florida Primary May Not Be Over Yet, Gingrich Campaign to Challenge State’s Winner Take All Status

the Florida primary may not be over. Under the Republican National Committee rules, no state can be winner take all until after April 1, which Florida was.

tomorrow, the Gingrich campaign will send a Florida campaign official to look into the issue and see if they can get the rules enforced that prevent the state from being winner takes all and require that the delegates be divided proportionally.

Any presidential primary, caucus, convention, or other meeting held for the purpose of selecting delegates to the national convention which occurs prior to the first day of April in the year in which the national convention is held, shall provide for the allocation of delegates on a proportional basis.

Rule 16 then imposes penalties upon any unauthorized state1 which chooses to violate Rule 15(b) by holding binding primaries or caucuses prior to April 1, 2012. These penalties include a fifty percent reduction in the number of delegates and a prohibition against RNC members from the state serving as delegates or alternate delegates to the convention. Left unclear in the interaction of Rules 15(b)(2) and 16 is whether the RNC is required to impose proportional allocation of delegates for any state, such as Florida, which elected to violate the mandate that all binding primaries and caucuses held before April 1,

straightforward language of Revised Rule 15(b)(2) would appear to indicate that proportional allocation in Florida is mandatory upon the RNC.

so either it is only 25 delegates or the delegates are divided proportionally?

For some reason the Republican establishment is really rooting for Romney, and here OT has told us the party has moved "right"

the party may have moved from conservatism towards libertarianism over the last few decades..

but the establishment has certainly gone from center right to center left,..

and thus supports liberal/moderate Romney...

but the reason so many leftist/media seem to be supporting Romney is because they believe he can beat Obama, :? :) :shock:

:lol:


if Romney wins the nomination, obama wins another 4 years.....if obama's strategy of class warfare works. That is why his campaign partners have manufactured the OWS movement.

But the OWS movement has lost much of it's support, due to it's violent actions. the bloom is fading......

the wrench will be, if Santorum wins....that would make obama's strategy obsolete, ineffective and a huge waste of campaign dollars
