Although obscured by the nominations of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and concerns over a Gulf Coast hurricane, the Republican National Convention is bracing for a contentious floor fight on Tuesday. At issue is an RNC proposal that conservative critics say is an attempt to silence grassroots conservatives by deciding convention delegates based on the direct results of primaries or even based on the desires of candidates or party leaders. Dave Nalle is national chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus. He says the national party is following the same path as the Democrats did in order to squelch minority dissent for the party’s nominee. Nalle says the smarter move would be to allow debate over the nominees and then the losing side would feel it was treated with respect and allowed to make its case. He says if the rule passes, conservatives not enamored with Romney may conclude their voices don’t matter to the RNC and be tempted to support Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson. Nalle also explains why he thinks side will ultimately win Tuesday’s floor debate.
