What happened in Minnesota’s Senate District 60 has been repeated in St. Louis, MO:
The slate backing Paul cast 158 votes in the non-binding caucus Saturday. The purpose was to choose representatives to a round of Congressional district meetings in April and June that will repeat the process to send 52 delegates from Missouri to the August convention in Tampa, Fla.
The slate that primarily backed Santorum had 74 votes, while the Romney slate mustered 50 votes.
The delegates to the next-higher level are not bound, but it is widely understood that Paul supporters are fiercely loyal. It is unlikely they’ll be voting to support Santorum or Romney.
If this continues, there will be a rash of news stories surpised at the delegate strength Ron Paul will bring to the GOP national convention.
