The influence of Ron Paul's third-place Iowa caucus campaign is growing, in light of gains his supporters made Saturday during GOP conventions held in Iowa's four congressional districts.

The Texas congressman's supporters could have an outsized role in which Iowans attend the Republican National Convention.

State party officials say at least half of an eight-member committee elected to nominate Iowa's delegation to the Republican National Convention in August supported Paul in the January caucuses.

Separately, six Republicans who were elected Saturday to the 18-member state Republican central committee supported Paul in the caucuses.

Paul, who promotes deep spending cuts and opposes foreign military intervention, has won no caucuses or primaries and trails
likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney by more than a 10 to 1 ratio in the
delegate chase.
