Ron Paul National Delegate Count Now 42 or More

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 6, 2008

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – With the results of many of the “Super Tuesday” primaries and caucuses now finalized, the Ron Paul campaign is now projecting that it has at least 42 delegates to the national convention secured.

While much of the focus in yesterday’s Super Tuesday contests focused on preference poll numbers, Ron Paul caucus-goers were focused on securing delegates to the national convention. With dedicated supporters and an organization focused purely on securing delegates, the campaign has secured more delegates to the national convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul than caucus straw polls might otherwise suggest.

According to campaign projections, a minimum of 24 delegates were won in yesterday’s contests. When added to projected delegates coming from strong showings in Iowa (4), Nevada (8), Louisiana (3) and Maine (3), that brings the total delegate count to 42 delegates or more.

“Our goal has always been to walk into the national GOP convention with as many delegates as possible,” said Ron Paul 2008 campaign manager Lew Moore. “The number of delegates we won yesterday could very well be the difference in a Convention where no one has a first-ballot majority. With Dr. Paul’s home state of Texas coming up, we feel we can enter the convention with a substantial number of delegates.”

In an agreement first reported by West Virginia television station WSAZ, three Ron Paul delegates were secured through an agreement with the Mike Huckabee campaign at the West Virginia state convention early Tuesday. Ron Paul delegates to the state convention swung their sizable support to Huckabee – putting Huckabee over the top – in exchange for the delegates.

According to campaign projections from last night’s results at least 3 delegates were won in Alaska, 5 delegates were won in North Dakota, 9 delegates were won in Minnesota, and 4 delegates were won in Colorado.

Additionally the results of the Louisiana Caucus may still change in favor of Ron Paul, where an ongoing legal challenge may result in most of that state’s delegates going towards Ron Paul after state GOP officials violated their own rules to improperly put delegates from other campaigns on the ballots.

Who We Are: An Open Letter to the Old Media
by Rick Fisk [Jan 4, 2008]
“……..While you’ve rejected change and cling to your old ways, we’ve embraced change. When you tried to tell us about the “new economy” we recognized it for what it was: The old Federal Reserve–driven boom-and-bust centrally-planned economy. We’re not buying what you have to sell and in some cases, we’re even shorting your stock and profiting from your demise.

We’re young, old, Republican, Libertarian, Democrat, Anarchist, Green, Constitutionalist, Christian, Muslim, Jews, Atheist, Pagan, homeschooling, no-TV-watching, TV-watching, raw milk-drinking, pasteurized milk-drinking, farmer’s market-shopping, alternative building, single, divorced, 2.5 kid-having, 3-car-having, bicycle-riding, fitness-fanatic, farmer, no-car-having, sedentary, public school–attending, Gay, Straight, Black, Yellow, Red, Brown, White, Man, Woman, child. We’re the demographic group to whom you have never marketed. We believe that we’re smart enough to manage our own affairs and don’t need government hand-outs.

We’re tired of being told about a Social Security trust fund that never existed, a government that is here to help us and an income tax that really, really does make us liable to pay – cross our hearts and hope to die (just don’t read the law please). We’re tired of being treated like children. We treat our own children much better than the bureaucrats, whom you constantly claim have our best interests at heart, treat us.

We’re tired of being told that we should live our lives in fear of people six thousand miles away; who hate us because we’re free, when we aren’t actually free. We’re tired of being told that every encroachment upon our freedoms is justified because the world is “different now.” Different from what? Does our dictator wear a different brand of suit than the one whose country was bombed into oblivion on his orders?

Whether you are yourselves frightened, or you just want us to be frightened, we’re giving up fear.”
