Mass exodus

So many delegates are leaving the hall that convention chairman Kirby Wilbur says the group may not have a quorum.

When alternates in the back of the room suggested he seat alternates with a "One man, one vote," chant, Wilbur exploded with "Shut Up! How thick are you?"

He has repeatedly said alternates can't be seated without the credentials of the leaving delegate.
Argument is continuing while delegates continue to file out.

Convention could be over soon.
