A group of Ron Paul supporters is suing the Republican National Committee, Chairman Reince Priebus, the Republican parties of every U.S. state and territory and the chair of each state party. The plaintiffs hope that a federal judge will rule that all delegates to the national convention are “unbound” and therefore free to vote for the candidate of their choice. The suit also alleges that the RNC has been helping Mitt Romney’s campaign throughout the presidential primary, in violation of party rules.
“It’s a frivolous lawsuit,” Republican Party of Iowa Chairman A.J. Spiker said. “I don’t think it will go anywhere.”
