With only two GOP candidates left standing and a significant crowd yelling "President Paul," candelegates vote for at the National Convention? Some people seem to think so, but others say it is against the Republican National Committee (RNC) rules.
There is a whole lot of buzz going on about delegate count in the Republican party this week, especially after Ron Paul's recent wins. But are delegates free agents at the National Convention or are they bound by their original choice?
The liberty-minded Ben Swann of Fox19's WXIX Cincinnati seems to think the delegates are free agents, and he has a pretty strong argument to back it up in the video above. He cites RNC rule number 38 to stand his ground against a blogger who apparently disagreed with his Reality Check show just a week before this one titled: Bound delegates may not be bound after all. He states the rule clearly and points out that once any delegate gets to Tampa they are free agents.
Rule 38 says, "No delegate or alternate delegate shall be bound by any attempt of any state or congressional district to impose the "Unit Rule."
What do you think? Will any of Mitt Romneys' delegates exile over to Ron Paul?
A YouTube comment by 00777ski said, "Romney has never nor will he ever have such massive support.. all he did was outrun and outspend his opponents from his deep crooked pockets and with his Zionist friends support... Ron Paul on the other hand has had ten times the support from individuals.
When it comes to the Convention in August...these delegates may indeed turn on Romney and vote in Ron Paul. America should show its support of this by writing to the delegates in a plea to Save American under President Paul."
