Chaos at the convention, police called to assist
Norman, Okla.– Contention at the convention, that’s how many Republicans described the Oklahoma State Convention Saturday.
Republicans from almost every county gathered in Norman to vote on party issues. However, parliamentary procedure took a back seat to physical altercations.
Dozens of attendees told NewsChannel 4 police had to get involved when a Mitt Romney supporter believed to be almost 80-years-old punched a Ron Paul supporter in the head after they disagreed on a vote.
Kyle Minor spoke to us about being hit. “At the end of the day we got everything done. I don’t want to focus on the negative but I do appreciate the police assistance,” says Minor.
Conference goers showed us video of the police defusing the situation.
