Delegates from Nevada tried to nominate Mr. Paul from the floor, submitting petitions from their own state as well as Minnesota, Maine, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska and the Virgin Islands. That should have done the trick: Rules require signatures from just five states. But the party changed the rules on the spot. Henceforth, delegates must gather petitions from eight states.
Does anybody know of any other coverage of this shitstack? Though I’m not enamored of Paul, I am a longtime party pluralist and a lifelong nonconservative unrepublican – and this still managed to shock and appall me.
