Republican National Convention floor flight over rules leave some delegates wondering about the direction of the party.
The Republican National Convention may be over, but Minnesota's delegates sure left an impression. So much so, in fact, that some of those delegates are deeply concerned—in the wake of their continued support of Ron Paul as a nominee, instead of Mitt Romney—that the Republican Party is quietly working to render powerless all future delegates who express independence from the party line. Delegates from Minnesota are saying that some rule changes made last week at the convention will quash grassroots efforts like the one that enabled Paul to win the majority of the Minnesota delegates. Just before the convention started on Monday, a key committee endorsed new rules for 2016 convention that essentially gave the party's presumptive nominee …

Patch caught up with Forsyth County Commission Chairman Jim Boff after Newt Gingrich spoke to the county's Republican party, and he was pleased to hear the presidential hopeful's comments about energy independence. "I loved what Newt had to say, most especially for me about trying to become energy independent through use of shale oil and also new oil reserves found in North Dakota," Boff said. Asked if he thought the country could return to gas prices of $2.50 a gallon or lower, which Gingrich said could happen if he was president, Boff said, "If he says it, I believe it.
