Do you know of any discussion of what the Paulistas are doing in primary states? Are the delegates selected in those states pretty much winner take all? And, are the delegates selected by the primary vote percentages?

It seems that if Romney won a primary, he is being credited with getting all the delegates possible in that state. Is this true?

The Paulistas are still running grass roots campaigns in all states, including the primary states. I know that in California there is LibertyHQ and I am guessing there are other organised groups are at work elsewhere. None of these groups has shutup shop.

From what I have seen online these people are pretty organised and a lot of them are actually knowledgeable Republicans- they know the rules when it comes to voting etc.

As for the Primary delegate allocations. It varies depending on the State rules. Some are winner take all and others are proportional. I am not sure what rules apply in the upcoming events.

Spook !
