But according to Paul’s Alaska campaign chief Evan Cutler in the Alaska dispatch something wasn’t right and from the looks of it the party didn’t want Paul to do well.
“People were turned away at the polls that were registered to vote due to confusion among the poll volunteers. Voter registration databases were outdated younger voters, voters of a certain demographic were turned away” and that the campaign had conducted exit polling across the state and that numbers reported by the state party leaders “didn’t jibe.”
Cutler even called out Alaska GOP Chairman Randy Ruedrich for trying to rig the election for Romney.
“There were some other complaints about the process in your own district. According to the reports I received, when the District Convention convened there were 7 delegates in your cohort and 7 in the Ron Paul one. Instead of letting people vote then, I was told you instead called supporters from your side one by one until you had enough people on the Romney side on the phone to take all the delegate slots. …
There have been rumors that the establishment and those in power have tried to keep Paul down and marginalize his supporters but if this is true it’s sad where the winner is already chosen before the people go to the polls.
