TAMPA, Fla. — Ron Paul doesn’t have many convention delegates and will likely disappear after this week, but his supporters aren’t going quietly.

Paul held a noisy counter-convention rally yesterday at the University of South Florida, while his delegates were working to make sure they’re on the convention floor when Mitt Romney is nominated.

The Romney campaign has denied Paul a speaking slot, but the Texas congressman yesterday jokingly said the Republican Party called to offer him a slot.

“They said they changed their mind and they said I could have a whole hour and say what I want — tomorrow night,” he said.

The convention, of course, has been canceled for tonight due to Tropical Storm Isaac.

Paul won only 137 delegates during the primaries, but his supporters in a number of states were causing some last-minute havoc, promising to vote against Romney’s nomination and pushing for delegate slots.
