The Missouri Delegate process was much more confusing then originally anticipated. Right from the get go there was contention and confusion. Many Republican caucuses in Missouri on Saturday were plagued with fighting and yelling as opposing candidate supporters were vying for those delegates allotted in the Missouri Caucus. In fact it had gotten so out of hand one meeting was abruptly shut down. There were local supporters of Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. All fought passionately for a bit of an edge in the delegate selection process, that many state residents find to be complicated and difficult. Another example of this process that excited people was at a caucus at a school near St. Louis 2,500 Republicans gathered and before a vote was adjourned because it got so load and chaotic that extra police were called. All across the state political tensions led to recounts on votes over which candidates should be supported and which people should preside over the caucuses.
