I didn't know

which thread to ask this question in. 4 years ago seems like a lifetime ago to me. Did the other candidates give their delegates to the leader back then as they dropped out? Are they allowed to do that? I slightly remember something about Huckabee making a deal in W.V. with Paul. Thanks to anyone who can answer this.

Excellent info. Thanks.

Deadline to apply to become

a State Convention Delegate is February 10.

If you are in Indiana, please apply to become a delegate. You have nothing to lose.





Is there really no downside

Is there really no downside to this? As in, if there are circumstances in which the delegate can't make it to the convention or pay the fee, there is no penalty or downside to simply not going? What happens if that person doesn't show up?

"The principle can be established that for a man who does not cheat, what he believes to be true must determine his action."
-- Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus

There is no downside

People not showing up is a common occurrence. There are even delegates to the NATIONAL convention who don't show up. That's why there are alternate delegates who can take the place of the delegate.

If you cannot make it to the State Convention, I'm not 100% sure but I think the State GOP will find a replacement or leave the position vacant.

If you have any questions

please ask.


I read that you have to win an election amongst other candidates. How does that process work? Who is voting? Either way, I am in...


When you file as a candidate, your name gets placed on the primary election ballot (same one as the Presidential election) within your precinct.

If you are the only person within your precinct that files as a candidate, you win by default (which happens a lot) and your name will not be on the ballot.

If your precinct gets to elect 2 delegates and 2 people file as candidates within your precinct, you both win by default. If more than 2 people file as candidates, then the top 2 vote getters become delegates.

Remember the form must be RECEIVED by noon on February 10. You should definitely hand deliver the form.
