Romney loses to Paul in his own state

The Examiner

Mitt Romney could not even beat
Ron Paul in his home state of Mass.
Paul scored more than half of all
the state's delegates over the weekend.
What may be the most embarrassing moment yet for Mitt Romney, during the race for the 2012 Republican Nomination, happened over the weekend in the very state in which he is the former Governor and calls home.

Ron Paul won.

Even though it was reported Sunday that Mitt Romney himself was apparently responsible for picking the slate of Massachusetts State Delegates he was hoping everyone would vote for, his delegates.
Unfortunately for Mitt Romney, that didn't happen.

Instead, over half of the delegates he was hoping people would vote for never made it, including notable State Republicans such as the House Minority Leader and other state politicians who even wanted to remain nameless.

Romney lost so badly in his home state that Ron Paul supporters were even voted in as the majority of the Alternate-Delegates, spiting hopefuls that included a popular 2010 gubernatorial candidate and a prominent Sheriff.

Even worse for the old Republican establishment is that all these new Mass. State Delegates for Paul will now get to vote for the State Party Chair, the Party Platform, and the VP of their choice. Bet your bottom dollar they will all most likely be Ron Paul Delegates, supporters and ideals.

Massachusetts, however isn't the only state that has seen this explosion for Ron Paul support.

As the race has developed many states around the country have ultimately gone for Paul, much in the same way. Iowa, Minnesota, Colorado, Louisiana and Alaska thus far have seen similar results play out there, and many more states are expected to follow suit.

This overwhelming show of support for Ron Paul is also expected to dominate Nevada's State Convention on May 5th.
The main reason is because Ron Paul supporters have been the most dedicated and the most educated on the GOP nomination process and have also been the most willing participants in their post-Caucus and post-Primary delegate selection processes around the country.

Now that Paul has won the majority of the delegates in at least 5 states he is also assured to have his name on the ballot during the RNC in Aug.

In addition to the incredible outpouring of support for Paul and his campaign, the fact that he is now a shoe-in to be on the ballot and have a platform at the National Convention is worrying the establishment very deeply and gives new life to a candidate who was once thought to have no chance of being the party's nominee.
