Alex Hays Executive Director of the Mainstream Republicans in WA State, tells Pierce County 2nd district delegates at the County convention that they need to vote on a slate to stop Ron Paul. It worked in several districts, but this one later shifted and Santorum's people cut a deal with Paul's people.

"This was my district (2nd). I actually got to count votes! We ended up sending 15 Paul, 15 Santorum, and 1 Romney. The Romney people were pissed! I'm not sure how the alternates worked out, but it was either 15 Paul, 16 Santorum, or vice versa. My wife and I are both alternates. I was so upset by the "Unity Slate" people and their disgusting bias that I used part of my speech to express how appalled I was at their behavior. They were very rude anytime a speech maker mentioned Ron Paul, and their "savagery" caused them to yell "time" and interrupt well before the allotted time had run out. The Ron Paul people were all very civilized, in my humble opinion." Brandon Clarke

What was it the Paul people tried to do on the main floor?
Nick Sherwood tried to pass a motion to reinstate a rule that would have allowed elections of chairs in each legislative district. The party had recently changed the rules to make the permanent chairs of each legislative meeting, the GOP chosen leadership of each legislative district.
In the past there was always a temporary chair and an election for a permanent chair.
I would have filmed the whole thing but I did not have a camera, just my phone and so I had to be picky.
