|3. Liberty Delegates file challenge to RNC
The 17 bounced Liberty Delegates, who were pledged to Mitt Romney, filed their challenges last week. The Boston Globe has the story.
Sixteen Republicans elected to represent Massachusetts at the national convention in Tampa next month have filed a formal challenge with the Republican National Committee, saying they were unfairly disqualified based on state GOP leaders' concerns about their fealty to presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
The group of delegates - originally supporters of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul - were elected in April caucuses at which they unexpectedly defeated many of Romney's chosen delegates, but they have been since disqualified by state party officials.
"In short, the Massachusetts Republican Party changed the rules," the delegates wrote in a letter to the national committee.
