At the near end of a long row of tables during Saturday morning, there was a Mitt Romney table with three or four people gathered around, one of whom was angry that the campaign had not called him. Some twenty tables away, far from the entrance to the convention hall, was Ron Paul’s table. In stark contrast to Romney’s table, more than one hundred Nevada delegates gathered around Ron Paul’s table laughing and smiling. Some brought their children as guests to watch the convention and see Ron Paul speak to Nevada Republicans. After four years of diligently preparing for the 2012 Republican state convention, a win would be difficult to take away from these Ron Paul supporters.
Ron Paul supporters came in the door with Ron Paul signs. A handful of Mitt Romney supporters came in the door with “yes” and “no” signs. They would be used to help people at the convention know what ideas the Romney campaign supported and to presumably have them unquestionably follow the command of the sign bearer.
Early in the day, the heads of the Paul and Romney Nevada campaigns were called to the podium and spoke unifying words. The niceties ended there.
Within half an hour, a Republican Party official was scolding the Romney campaign operatives quietly in the hallway, “Why would you pull these stunts half an hour into a convention?”
