Texas could be the game changer:

By Donna Garner

It turns out that Romney and Santorum in actuality are only separated by 229 delegates. (Please read the second article).

Texas’ Republican Party Chair, Steve Munisteri, explained in an interview yesterday (first article) that even if the Republican National Committee refuses to grant Texas a Winner-Take-All waiver (contingent upon Texas’ Republican leadership – SREC – voting to ask the RNC for a Winner-Take-All waiver), a floor fight at the National Republican Convention could mount a challenge to have the entire Texas delegation seated. This would mean 152 delegates + 3 members of the RNC for a grand total of 155.  

If all Texas’ 155 delegates were to go to Santorum, the split between Romney and Santorum would only be 74 delegates (229 – 155 = 74); and Santorum is sure to win many of the following states whose primaries are coming up in May such as Arkansas, Kentucky, Texas, West Virginia, and North Carolina.

Even though the liberal media (who want Romney to win because they think Obama could easily beat him) together with the compromising Republican elitists are trying to make us think this Republican race is over, it is not.

Santorum is the conservative champion; the grassroots, hard-working people of America love him.  Game on!

“Chairman Munisteri said that even though states had to submit their rules to the Republican National Committee back in October 1, 2011, a waiver from those rules could be sought by vote of the RNC Executive Committee. 

 Munisteri went on to explain that it was the RNC that forced Texas to move to proportional from its previous delegate hybrid plan because the RNC wanted to punish Texas for scheduling its primaries in March.  However, now that our primaries have been moved back to May 29, he believes it is fair to move our state back to its original rules.  He explained that there can always be a floor fight at the National Convention to challenge the RNC’s credentials or rules committee; a successful challenge would mean the entire Texas delegation could be seated.”

Memo: Romney delegates counted too high  

WASHINGTON, April 6 (UPI) — Rick Santorum’s delegate count is much closer to front-runner Mitt Romney‘s than reported, a memo prepared for a conservative campaign huddle in Virginia says. 

While most estimates show GOP presidential hopeful Romney with 657 or 658 delegates and Santorum with 273 to 281, “the real count” gives Romney 571 delegates and Santorum 342, the memo by delegate strategist John Yob of the Grand Rapids, Mich., political consulting firm Strategic National said. 

Instead of Romney and Santorum being separated by nearly 400 delegates, as widely reported — which suggests Romney has essentially sewn up the race — the White House hopefuls are separated by only 229 delegates, said the memo published by CNN and reviewed by United Press International. 

“This race is much closer than the media and Establishment Republicans would like to report,” the Thursday memo said, as Santorum met with several conservative leaders in Northern Virginia to consider strategies to help his campaign. 

Looking ahead, the memo said if the Texas Republican primary May 29, with 155 delegates at stake, switches from a proportional to a winner-take-all election — and Santorum wins — “the race is almost even.”

The Texas Republican convention process is now underway. Please do not let this opportunity pass you by. Some counties are holding precinct conventions and others are not.  Attending the precinct convention is the first step in the convention process so it is important for you to attend.

Most counties are bypassing the precinct conventions and holding either the Senatorial District Convention (larger urban areas) or County Convention either on Saturday, April 14 or Saturday, April 21.

It is important that many of you become delegates to the Republican Party of Texas Convention in Fort Worth, June 7-9, 2012, so you must participate in the earlier processes in order to qualify to become a delegate.

    I have said for years now I wouldn’t trust Romney as far as I could throw him; and I am a small woman who is partially disabled so you know how far that is.

  2. Dianna Says:

    Rick Santorum is the real deal; a true conservative who leads with integrity and conviction! Romney on the other hand is a wolf in sheep’s clothing—my apolgies to the sheep!
