Jim Fossel ‏ @JWFoss
@ASFried One thing this weekend demonstrates is how totally illegitimate the presidential caucus process is.

Jim Fossel ‏ @JWFoss
I am now totally on board with switching back to a presidential primary process from caucuses

Amy Fried ‏ @ASFried
Shenanigans at #MEGOPConvo shown by @DirigoBlue mirrored in Nevada, similar attempt to stop #RonPaul. http://www.rgj.com/section/blogs01?plckController=Blog&plckBlogPage=BlogViewPost&U=063a1ff4-7a74-4c66-8976-85b765479560&plckPostId=Blog:063a1ff4-7a74-4c66-8976-85b765479560Post:e477e5ee-5d1e-4c6e-9208-fa6ce4e44908&plckScript=blogScript&plckElementId=blogDest #mepolitics

Lizzy Reinholt ‏ @Lizzy_Reinholt
RT @zach_hudson: Never seen a state convention so thoroughly reject presumptive nominee b4. Apparently “hit the bottom” doesn’t play…

Jim Fossel ‏ @JWFoss
@ASFried @GriffinClubMerv I think they’re split all over on the Senate race.

Amy Fried ‏ @ASFried
