Ron Paul supporters: 'We're not letting this go down without a fight'



paulsticker.jpgRon Paul's supporters are greatly out numbered on the convention floor but are making their displeasure with RNC rules known and insist they'll try to offer up Paul as the nominee.

"We're not letting this go down without a fight," said Ron Paul supporter Joe Jurecki, 38, of Michigan.

Paul entered the Tampa Bay Times Forum this afternoon and was mobbed by fans and reporters. "Ron Paul! Ron Paul! Ron Paul!" they chanted. A man yelled out, "Run independent. Screw the party."

Asked what his message is to the delegates Paul said, "Do the right thing." He did not clarify that remark.
