Mike Huckabee to Ron Paul supporters: You lost, move on [View all]

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.
