Paul Supporters Shake Up the Delegate Math

With Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) set to be presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's last remaining challenger after Newt Gingrich's expected withdrawal from the race today, the Washington Times highlights some of Paul's "organizational victories that could complicate Mr. Romney's anticipated coronation at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., this summer."

Hitting close to home: "In Massachusetts, the state where Mr. Romney served as governor, Paul loyalists over the weekend helped block more than half of Mr. Romney's preferred nominees from being named delegates at state party caucuses -- even though Mr. Romney won his home state's primary with 72 percent of the vote... the RNC had assigned the Marriott Hotel in Tampa overlooking the convention center for the delegation representing the likely nominee's home state. The hotel is considered the nicest in the vicinity -- and now the Paul delegates will be able to enjoy the top-floor views."
