CD-6 manana, or esta noche? 

I am planning to go tomorrow to the CD-6 Republican convention as an alternate (a deep-numbered one at that.) Andy is on his way. The Knoblach campaign sent a mailer to delegates and alternates that arrived this week urging them to show up for the Friday evening caucus because "one campaign" was planning to change the rules and force through an endorsement tonight. The tradition is for a Saturday endorsement contest; this rule changing behavior fits some other reports of convention shenanigans played by "one campaign". (I wonder if they've registered the domain name ""?)

Is Knoblach just paranoid? You decide. But if the stunt gets pulled tonight, I would say that no other candidate should feel obligated to abide by that endorsement.
