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

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

Supporters of Paul and Romney clashed at the Louisiana party convention in June and ended up holding dueling conventions, with each group submitting lists of delegates. The two sides reached the compromise Tuesday in Tampa, Fla., the site of next week's national convention.

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