Minnesota CD 1 Convention callSubmitted by Minnesota Mary on Fri, 04/13/2012 - 18:09
I received my Congressional District Convention call in the mail today, 4/13/12. Here's what the second paragraph says:
"It is therefore very important that we get all this work done that we will come prepared to work fast and work hard. The proposed rules require that ANYONE WNO WANTS TO RUN FOR NATIONAL DELEGATE OR ALTERNATE MUST first choose which position they want to run for and also FILE WITH THE NOMINATING COMMITTEE CHAIR...(name withheld here)...NOT LATER THAN 8:00 PM ON TUESDAY APRIL 17TH of your intention to run. All candidates must then complete a questionnaire. All such candidates filing will be placed in nomination but nominations from the floor will not be allowed. Bill can forward an explanation sheet of what is expected of a national delegate/alternate, the projected costs, and time commitments. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTOR CANDIDATES ALSO MUST SIMILARLY FILE IN ADVANCE BY 8:00 PM TUESDAY."
Notice the short notice given to those wanting to run for National Delegate or Alternate!
It's obvious that the GOP is going to play real dirty in shutting out Ron Paul people. It's going to be even worse than four years ago. We had nothing like this sent to us in the mail then.
Any suggestions on how to deal with this?
