The Ron Paul campaign reports that they captured a number of delegates in Minnesota and Colorado yesterday and will probably secure Santorum’s delegates. “We are in the process of taking over the GOP,” says Doug Wead, a Paul campaign advisor.
On his April 11, 2012 blog post, Wead explains how the Paul campaign strategy to capture delegates is working.
Many of the delegates who have already been selected to go to Tampa and are pledged to vote for Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich are actually Ron Paul activists who were chosen as delegates because they showed up and got elected as such, not because they committed to any of the candidates. We don’t yet have a complete count on any of this but it is substantial. We are in the process of taking over the GOP at many precinct and county levels. And that is translating into power at the state conventions where the delegations are chosen….
This means that the convention floor in Tampa will be loaded with Ron Paul supporters. And it means if Santorum releases his delegates many of them will vote for us because they were never Rick Santorum supporters in the first place.
