Paul takes 22 Nevada GOP delegates; Romney gets three
SPARKS -- GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul on Sunday nearly swept
all of Nevada’s delegates to the national convention as his supporters
swamped Mitt Romney backers at the state Republican convention.
Paul won 22 Nevada delegates to three for Romney, according to
official vote tallies released early Sunday as the overtime convention
extended into a second day to finish business.
Another three official Nevada delegates not up for election -- the
state party chairman, the current national committeeman and national
committeewoman -- are expected to support Romney.
That would send 22 Paul delegates and six Romney delegates from Nevada to the national convention Aug. 27-30 in Tampa, Fla.
