From Chuck Muth via email:
The Committee on Contests recommended that the National Convention accept the results of the two congressional district elections at the Nevada GOP convention in April. Those results give four seats to Ron Paul supporters and two others. The remainder of the delegation would be selected from the Executive Committees appointments. This is the BEST the Paultards can hope for at this point.
IF…the Nevada GOP accepts this compromise, the Paultards will get one less delegate than they would have had if Jeff Greenspan would have honored the deal he made with the party to take put five Ron Paul delegates on the official Nominations Committee slate of recommendations last April.
But my understanding is that the Nevada GOP is objecting to the recommendation of the Committee on Contests and this decision will ultimately be made sometime before the start of the convention by the Credentials Committee. The Nevada GOP has said all along that there were voting irregularities in those congressional district races and aren’t likely to accept the results of those elections. So it’s still possible that the Paultards will end up with squat.
