Rules change passes over loud objections

Former New Hampshire governor John Sununu presided over a voice vote on controversial changes to the party rules. Again, Ron Paul supporters and other opponents of the changes, which give more power to the presidential nominee, objected loudly. 

The "no's'" drowned out the "ayes" in at least some parts of the hall, but Sununu plowed ahead, as loud boos filled the hall.

 

 

"The ayes didn't have it!" said Jon Burrows, a delegate from Texas. "They're just railroading this thing through."

There were more boos after the change was announced and chants of "point of order," but they have died down. So that settles it -- barring continued outbursts.
