Compromise Gives Ron Paul More Delegates

Rep. Ron Paul picked up more delegates to the Republican National Convention Tuesday after his supporters reached a compromise over disputed delegates from Louisiana.

The Texas congressman will get 17 of the Louisiana's 46 delegates in the compromise, said Charlie Davis, who served as Paul's campaign chairman in Louisiana. The rest of the state's delegates are expected to support Mitt Romney, the party's presumptive nominee.

A Republican National Committee official confirmed the agreement. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, was not authorized to publicly discuss the negotiations.
