Although with the complicated set up of that states caucus, who knows?
Nope, you're wrong
The LA Caucus is in 2 parts. The GOP Primary isn't until
Feb 9, 2008. This was just a show of hands basically and
Paul won that part with more on site supporters than
anyone else in the GOP. However all the other candidates
issued their "Slate" delegates which are delegates who have
pledged to vote for a candidate in the primary but didn't attend
this first small caucus. So basically McCain cashed in his slate votes
and stole it away from RP at the last minute.
So it's not really a victory for anyone .... YET !!!!
It won't be until Feb 9 when all candidates have to put up or
shut-up. As the slate votes don't count on Feb 9. They have
to be at the caucus or it don't count. LA has some weird
GOP protocols ..... LOL
So it's still up in the air, however Ron Paul has his best
showing so far in that first of 2 LA Caucuses.
Way to go Ron !!!!!
