In an agreement first reported by West Virginia television station WSAZ, the three Ron Paul delegates were secured through an agreement with the Mike Huckabee campaign.Gosh, thanks. To a certain extent, McCain winning would make a third party run by Paul or someone else easier, but on the other hand McCain isn't qualified to be president.
Ron Paul delegates to the state convention swung their support to Huckabee – putting Huckabee over the top – after Congressman Paul was eliminated in the first round of voting. With three national delegates, Ron Paul secured 17 percent of the 18 delegates that were decided at the State Convention.
...the combined McCain-Huck vote was only 49 percent: Paul supporters sealed the deal.
