Ron Paul Supporters Successfully Defend Electoral Freedom in Alaska GOP

After being denied access to delegates, supporters in the Ron Paul campaign have gained control of the Alaska State Republican Party.

Never let it be said that the people have no power. Ron Paul supporters in Alaska flexed their electoral muscle and the former leadership of the state Republican Party is gone.

As was reported by The New American last week, outgoing GOP State Chairman Randy Reudrich was, according to stories being reported out of Alaska, trying to “disenfranchise Paul and other non-Romney delegates to the party’s upcoming state convention.”

Appropriately, the Paul campaign took issue with the efforts of Alaskan GOP officialdom to block its access to the state convention (and ultimately the national convention) because as it rightly reckoned, their man “won a significant portion of delegates at the Alaska State House district conventions already held.”

Add that to the fact that Rick Santorum terminated his presidential campaign and Paul’s people in Alaska were counting on the conversion of many of those delegates previously committed to Santorum to the cause of constitutionalism and its only presidential spokesman — Ron Paul.

Well, they need worry no longer. On Saturday Ruedrich delivered his last address as Chairman of the Alaska Republican Party.
