Rand Paul says convention rules ‘backfiring’ on the GOP



        Rand Paul says convention rules ‘backfiring’ on the GOP

Ex-White House hopeful Sen. Rand Paul suggested Tuesday that the GOP establishment shot itself in the foot in 2012 when the Republican National Convention Standing Rules Committee raised the threshold in what is known as rule 40(b).

Under rule 40(b), a candidate for president must win a majority of delegates in eight or more states to be eligible for the nomination. The number of states was adjusted from five to eight in 2012 to prevent Paul’s father, then-Texas Congressman Ron Paul, from having his votes counted.

But now that Republicans are desperately looking for another candidate to defeat front-runner Donald Trump, Republicans seem to be saying it’s OK to accept a candidate who hasn’t won eight states, Paul said.

“In 2012, when my dad was running, they made a special rule that said you can’t be nominated unless you win eight states. And then they didn’t count his votes,” the Kentucky senator explained on MSNBC. “But [it’s] interesting now, if you talk to all of the Republican establishment, they’re saying, ‘Oh yeah, your votes can be counted.'”
