Correction on Paul Delegates at Minneapolis

Correction: I was reminded last night that despite my report yesterday that the four Ron Paul delegates from Nevada eventually voted for John McCain at the National Convention in Minneapolis in 2008, two of the delegates snuck off to a “Rage Against the Machine” concert and gave up their delegate badges to alternates to cast votes for McCain.

The other two Paul delegates held out to the very end, dedicated to casting their votes for Dr. Paul. Alas, after pressure for a unified delegation vote and an appeal from Paul himself urging his folks not to make waves, those two Paul delegates gave up their spots for alternates who voted for McCain rather than do so themselves.

So those two really were principled Paul supporters.
