    Alaska Republican Party picks Ron Paul supporter as new chairman (DP mention)

    Alaska

    This is a developing story. Check back for updates tonight.

    The Alaska Republican Party has its first new chairman in years after voting Ron Paul supporter Russ Millette to take over the post at the group's annual convention in Anchorage.

    Chairman Randy Ruedrich, an old-school Republican not liked as much by tea party supporters, had decided not to run for re-election. That opened the door for Millette, who was voted in Saturday.

    Another Ron Paul supporter in Alaska -- Deb Brown -- is the Alaska Republican Party's new co-chair.

    Alaska Dispatch confirmed Millette had been voted in, and Paul supporters around the country were celebrating on their blogs Saturday night, including the Daily Paul.

    April 28 - Best Day For Ron Paul Ever?

    I have to say, we've never had so many victories in a single day before. We dominated Louisiana, took many delegates away from Romney in Massachusetts, took 4/6 delegates in Virginia's district conventions, put a Ron Paul supporter in the Alaska GOP leadership, and then this small victory in NC: Strong Ron Paul showing in 4th district NC | Peace . Gold . Liberty | Ron Paul 2012

    We have every reason to be optimistic. This is not the time to give up. We need to continue fighting, and we will win. Romney isn't going to walk away with the nomination. We will.

    "GOP race down to Romney and Paul (and may be closer than you think)"

    Newt Gingrich announced this week that he planned to end his campaign soon. According to the New York Times, Gingrich told supporters in North Carolina “The campaign will go bye-bye.” Gingrich still trails Rick Santorum and frontrunner Mitt Romney in delegates.

    According to the New York Times tally, Gingrich has 137 delegates. With 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination and only 962 delegates remaining, it would have been mathematically impossible for Gingrich to become the nominee.

    As Gingrich leaves the race, the Republican presidential primary comes down to Mitt Romney, the presumptive nominee, and another mathematically eliminated candidate, Rep. Ron Paul. Paul has won an estimated 80 delegates so far. Even if he were to win all remaining delegates he would fall far short of the nomination. The question is why Paul is staying in the race with the numbers stacked against him

    Paul’s strategy appears to be two-fold. In February, Rachel Maddow reported that Paul supporters were mounting a grass roots effort to gain control of delegates in caucus states. Regardless of the straw poll, Paul supporters would simply show up at local precincts and outlast the supporters of the winning candidates. In turn, they would take control of county and state caucuses as well. The strategy is working well in states won by Santorum and Gingrich.

    For example, according to the Associated Press, Rick Santorum won the Minnesota primary caucus with 44.9 percent of the vote. Paul placed second with 27.1 percent. However, The Hill reported this week that Paul won 20 of 24 possible delegates and “nearly all” alternate delegates from Minnesota’s district conventions. Thirteen more delegates are at stake in the state convention on May 4 and Paul is likely to win many of these as well.

    The second part of Paul’s strategy is to take delegates from Santorum and Gingrich, who have withdrawn from the race. CBS Denver reports that some Santorum supporters are turning to Ron Paul as an anti-Romney protest.

    The Santorum-Paul alliance won 13 of 18 delegates at the Colorado Republican convention. Colorado is also a caucus state. The Independent Voter Network speculates that Paul might similarly win a majority of delegates in the caucus states of Iowa, Missouri, Washington, and Nevada as well.

    Paul’s ultimate strategy seems to be to sway enough delegates to deny Mitt Romney the 1,144 needed to secure the nomination. According to the Independent Voter Network, if no candidate wins on the first ballot all delegates will be released to vote for whomever they choose. This is called a brokered or contested convention. In this case, the convention would become a free-for-all. There is speculation that many of Romney’s delegates might be Ron Paul “sleeper” supporters that would then vote for Rep. Paul on subsequent ballots.

    Paul’s covert strategy explains why he is remaining in the race even though he has yet to win a single election. In spite of Paul’s failure to win over Republican voters, he has a chance to become the Republican nominee and the only person standing between Barack Obama and a second term as president.

    I attended the 4th district convention in Wake county NC and can confirm at least 4 out of 6 delegates sympathetic to the cause...also many liberty folks getting into positions of local influence. Keep up the good work everyone!

    Ron Paul, Risk Grand Master?

    Submitted by freedom1787 on Sat, 04/28/2012 - 22:03 Ron Paul 2012

    After hearing the news today, I feel as though we should now call Ron Paul the...Risk Grand Master! This is like watching all of these people bicker over most of the Risk Map and now when Romney thinks he is about to control the world, Ron Paul has 12,837,829 armies in Australia.

    It's ON - they won't even know what happened when he shows up with a majority of delegates in Tampa.

    Ok...kind of a nerdy post - but I'm trying to get into RP's head on his GENIUS strategy!
