Unity slate maneuver

Ron Paul forces are asking to suspend the rules to elect a different slate of delegates to the national convention.

It’s being described as a “Unity Slate” and has well-known names such as former Sen. Slade Gorton and Rep. Cathy McMorris.

It will take a two-thirds vote to suspend the rules. If it passes, that will also elect the slate, convention chairman Kirby Wilbur says.

Lots of questions, so there may be a few minutes before they actually vote.
