According to Friday’s count, Paul delegate Robert Terhune won the most votes, with 288. Paul supporters Marla Criss and Pat Kerby had 283 votes each.
The delegates who actually went to the national convention for the 2nd Congressional District were Michelle Beard, who received 12 votes; Fely Quitevis, who received 19 votes; and Barbara Scoville who received no votes.
“It’s good to get it done,” said Wayne Terhune, a Reno dentist who helped organize Paul’s supporters. “It’s nice to be vindicated. The fact the three Ron Paul people won, indicates that might have been the reason they shut down the convention. Now it’s done. We can put it behind us.”
Last April, Republican leaders shut down the state convention after delegates, led by a contingent of Paul supporters, won a rules change that allowed them to change the way national delegates were elected. A box of ballots from the 2nd Congressional District that had been partially counted was locked in the cashiers cage after the convention ended.
