Ron Paul‘s long-shot presidential campaign officially may have officially come to an close — again — this weekend, after he failed to secure a majority of national delegates at Nebraska’s state GOP convention.
In the end, however, the Texas Congressman may walk away having achieved the real goal of his presidential campaign: An audit of the Federal Reserve.
A GOP source tells Business Insider that the Republican Party is seriously considering including support for an audit of the [...]

Word out of Iowa is that Ron Paul won a majority of that state’s delegates to the Republican National Convention to be held in August in Tampa, Florida. This is contrary to the story told on election night in January when first Mitt Romney and then, after a recount, Rick Santorum was declared the winner of the Hawkeye State’s caucus.
After what the Des Moines Register described as a “two-day tug-of-war [...]
Ron Paul backers complete weekend sweep in Minnesota
ST. CLOUD, Minn. — The Ron Paul revolution has completed its sweep over the Minnesota Republican Party convention here.
Paul backers won 12 of 13 Republican National Convention delegate slots filled in balloting Saturday, May 19, at Rivers Edge Civic Center.
They might have taken all 13 seats if one of the Paul state delegates had not graciously conceded the final slot to Rep. Michele [...]
From Washington’s Blog:
We noted last week that it’s still possible for Ron Paul to score an upset win over Mitt Romney.

Word out of Idaho is that the Ron Paul bloc in the Gem State’s GOP, perhaps encouraged by recent events at the Nevada and Maine state Republican conventions, plans to attempt a similar strategy.

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul’s hard-nosed troops aren’t giving up. Far from it. As demonstrated anew last weekend in Nevada and Maine, they are shaking up the GOP establishment and causing discomfort to strategists for front-runner Mitt Romney by capturing delegate blocs at the state level as they prepare for the Republican National Convention in Tampa this summer.
Paul organizers won’t tell the media exactly what they [...]
I’m at the convention now, 15 delegates for Ron Paul, 6 more to elect and Romney’s dickheads are trying to stuff the ballot with duplicate names to Ron Paul delegates, but that’s pretty bland compared to all they did trying to rig the election yesterday…will tell more when I’m at a computer if people want to hear about it.
Edit: have a bit of free time so here’s what went on [...]

Every media outlet seems to have a different delegate count. But almostinvariably we’re told Ron Paul is in last place and far behind the leader Mitt Romney.
But none of these delegate counters properly estimate how the caucuses will allocate their delegates. According to the Paul campaign, Ron is well positioned to win 50% of the delegates in Iowa, 75% in Minnesota, 50% in Colorado, and 75% in Maine. So what is likely to be [...]
