AL Republican Assembly Endorses Ron Paul

The Alabama Republican Assembly endorsed Ron Paul at their state convention today in Birmingham.

The endorsement required a 2/3rds majority of registered delegates. Ron Paul received the 2/3rds on the first ballot! Mike Huckabee came in second.

Convention chair Elaine Little noted that, with the crowded field, it was unusual that an endorsement would be won on the first ballot.

The group also held a straw poll that was open to the public. The winner of the straw poll was Ron Paul, with 81%.
