Tonight, Texas delegates loyal to Ron Paul are planning to loudly protest the compromise reached on delegate rules. Breitbart News sources on the convention floor say vast swaths of the Texas delegation are going to stand up and chant in unison, “No! Heck, no! Don’t change the rules!”
The Republican National Committee has been trying to amend the rules so presidential candidates could choose their own bound delegates. In the past, states would decide how to allot delegates through primaries, then pick the delegates at state conventions. The new rules would give the power to the presidential nominee. Republican National Committeeman James Bopp had been leading the fight against a rules change, but he said he had reached a compromise with the RNC.
