Washington State GOP changing the state convention rules?Submitted by whoiskdog on Mon, 04/30/2012 - 04:14
An email just came out from the party 30 minutes ago. The body of the email is copied below. I'm not sure if this is how delegate voting was going to take place anyway and the timing of voting over the four day convention simply changed, or whether they are going to chop up the state delegates into their Congressional Districts so as to preserve a few Romney majorities and take delegates from Paul. I suspect it's the latter. The moving targets just go on and on. If so, they are such POS. Anybody have a different interpretation or better insights?
"There have been some changes in the order of our convention program and I wanted to make sure you knew about them. On Friday morning we will convene the convention, approve the rules, elect a permanent chair and have our opening program. After lunch, we will convene in our ten Congressional District (CD) Caucuses to elect three National Convention delegates and three National Convention alternates from each CD. This will take all afternoon. After this full day, we will show the movie “Obama” from Citizens United and celebrate at Hospitality Suites.
Saturday morning we will reconvene to discuss our State Platform. After discussion and passage of our platform and resolutions, we will elect ten National Convention at-large delegates and ten National Convention at-large alternates and then adjourn.
If you have any questions- about any part of the convention, please ask us. We want to make your convention experience great."
