Il State Gop ConventionSubmitted by chitownjj on Mon, 04/30/2012 - 20:29
I got an email from the Republican Party of my home state of IL. Here is a link to what my question is about http://ilgopconvention.eventbrite.com/ I am not a delegate or alternate delegate. In IL those are voted on at the primary. Now there is an option to go as a guest, it cost $50 and will be used to promote Romney. Is it worth it to attend as a guest, and get the rest of my family and friends together as well to pack the place and pay a lot of money to do so knowing we can not vote or partake in any official business? Or should I work on getting them to donate directly to RP instead? I really want to be an active member of the GOP as we can see what is happening in other states, we know how important it is to support those RP supporters that have made it into the coveted leadership roles. Anyone want to discuss some pros vs cons? Especially other IL supporters. If we show up in big numbers, will they care? Will they ignore us? Or will they be forced to realize we aren't going anywhere?
