Maine's Ron Paul Delegates Walk Out of the RNC

The first full day of the Republican National Convention kicked off in Tampa Tuesday with the official nomination of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. House speaker John Boehner announced the delegate count. Controversy erupted on the convention floor when a dispute broke out over whether to seat the delegates of Rep. Ron Paul. Part of Maine’s delegation stormed off the floor in protest of a decision to strip away half of Paul’s delegates. Supportive members of other delegations rose to their feet and yelled their objections, angered by new rules that they say they will make it harder for grassroots candidates to stand a chance in future elections.
