Reports I have been monitoring suggest that RP delegates to district and state conventions have done very well in today’s caucuses in Missouri.
In Jackson County, near Kansas City, the combined Paul/Romney Beat Obama slate won the day 531 to 237, ensuring Paul will get 80% of the delegates from this county to both the district and state conventions! Thanks to Lorien Johnson for her exciting liveblog of the event today! (As always thanks to the Daily Paul too!)
On the other side of I-40, in St. Louis area, at least one caucus had 100% Paul VICTORY! Here‘s the report:
Supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul dominated the Republican caucus in St. Louis on Saturday with a majority-vote victory over two other slates backing other Republican nominee hopefuls.
The slate backing Paul cast 158 votes in the non-binding caucus Saturday. * * * The slate that primarily backed Santorum had 74 votes, while the Romney slate mustered 50 votes.
Barry County held their caucus today and the RP dominated slate again shut out Santorum:
Reed says Ron Paul supporters were extremely organized, wearing wireless mics and headsets so they could communicate across the room. Leaders wore orange hats and raised them to indicate their support of a particular delegate or issue.
They formed a coalition with Mitt Romney supporters in order to keep Rick Santorum from winning the majority of delegates. Reed says that strategy was a common theme at many other Missouri counties.
That’s organization at work! Many other counties apparently had the same theme.
The now infamous St. Charles caucus has been rescheduled for April 10 after state party officials forced the issue:
“Since Saturday, we have reviewed our options to determine the best way to move forward while ensuring that the voice of St. Charles has been heard,” Cole said. “We have concluded that the only proper remedy for this situation is to schedule a new St. Charles County caucus.”
Very promising results in the Show Me State!
