And it’s not just Maine and Colorado. Talking to reporters in January, Benton predicted that the Paul campaign would ultimately “win the Iowa delegation, even though we took a close third place . . . on caucus night.” Seventy-five percent of the Minnesota delegates to local party conventions are Paul backers, according to the campaign.
The Paul campaign continues to benefit from being very well-organized. The change between 2008 and this cycle in terms of the campaign’s competence is enormous, and it will make all the difference in maximizing Paul’s influence at the convention.
