RNC ain't buying what Greer's selling



Greer_new The RPOF chairman's statement after getting shot down today in a 121-9 vote: "While not surprised, I was disappointed that the full committee did not recognize the validity of Florida’s position that it is not in violation of the rule.  This is a long process and I continue to be confident that Florida will ultimately seat its full delegation.  I am appreciative of the members who supported Florida’s position and I look forward to continuing this dialogue in a respectful and cooperative manner. In the unlikely event that Florida’s delegation is reduced to 57 members, the Republican Party of Florida has adopted rules to ensure that Florida’s delegates to the convention have an influential and prominent role in selecting the Republican nominee.”
