Mike Huckabee to Ron Paul supporters: You lost, move on
TAMPA—Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has a message for Ron Paul supporters who say they feel "disrespected" by the Republican Party's delegate allocation process: You lost, move on.
"I don't think they've been disrespected," Huckabee told a gaggle of reporters as we walked through the convention center here near the Tampa Bay Times Forum. "Elections are about—you get numbers. I lost four years ago, and I didn't feel disrespected as much as I felt defeated. You have to accept that the voters make a choice and the voters made a choice."
Paul supporters, who embarked on an aggressive effort to secure delegates in several states during the Republican primaries, argue that Mitt Romney's campaign strong-armed the party into limiting Paul delegates at the convention.
On Sunday, thousands of Paul supporters met for a rally at the University of South Florida, where they expressed outrage at what they called unfair treatment during the state delegate selection process.

6. I hope they will
From what I was hearing from interviews on NPR, their feelings about voting for Romney are lukewarm at best- and they don't seem to be rabidly anti-Obama like most other Republicans either, so I imagine that at least a few might just stay home.
