The "S" In SRLC Stands for "Southern" Doesn't It?

I ask because:

Everyone in the Media Filing Center expected Ron Paul to win the straw poll — and he almost did. Despite bringing a reported 900 delegates to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, Paul got 438 votes, while Mitt Romney edged him by a single vote, with 439.

Sarah Palin came in third, tied with Newt Gingrich with 18% each. Interestingly, Palin and Gingrich topped the list of second choice selections as well. No one else even came close; Mike Huckabee followed with 4% of the vote. Tim Pawlenty and Mike Pence got 3% each, Rick Santorum got 2%, and Gary Johnson got 1%. After the first and second place finishes, vote totals were not provided.

Ed notes in an update that Certain Fuckin' Doomabee even spent campaign funds (he's still running) at the conference and came up crushingly short.

Romney also managed to beat Herr Doktor on his home turf. Unlike Paul, Romney did not speak at the convention.
