Ron Paul Supporters Infiltrate Utah GOP Delegation

Ron Paul supporters have infiltrated the Utah GOP delegation.

And you know what's great about this? They're not kowtowing to the collectivistic statist Republicans.

Here's an excerpt of the Salt Lake Tribune piece that goes into detail about it:

The Ron Paul Revolution will not go quietly.

As they have done in Nevada, Minnesota and elsewhere, a number of Utah Ron Paul backers are trying to get elected Saturday as delegates to the Republican National Convention where, under a proposed rule change, they could be free to vote for whomever they want.

Under existing party rules, the 36 Utah delegates to the convention are obligated to vote for Mitt Romney, who won the state GOP primary with 90 percent of the vote.

But on Saturday, the state party will consider changing its rules to release the delegates and let them vote for whom they see fit.

The proposed bylaws change comes in response to a request from Romney, after he dropped out of the race, to release his bound delegates.
