Battle for Oklahoma - 2nd Congressional District Chair Attacks!

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. – from the Declaration of Independence

A long train of abuses continues. “Elements” within the Republican Party continue to abuse their position, to the gain of one candidate over another. This time, both a Tea Party group and the Ron Paul campaign are accused of trying to “takeover” the Republican State Convention. A few points:

The “Ron Paul Campaign” has no official presence in Oklahoma at this time.

There is a very large grassroots effort on behalf of Ron Paul that does not receive help, guidance or funding from either the National Campaign or any other group.

The term “takeover” is inaccurate. We are simply Republicans showing up to participate.

We will see you on Saturday, Mr. Montgomery. We would like to know what your objection to our participation is. We would also like to know why you refer to us as “elements” instead of enthusiastic and active Republicans. Finally, we would like you to point out that in order to be a State Delegate, you are required to attend a Precinct Meeting and become a Delegate to your County Convention, and then attend County to become a Delegate to State. If you don’t do this, you can’t be a delegate to state, right? So, it might be too late, if you didn’t go to those meetings, correct? We have rules about things like this, don’t we? We will be watching.

We certainly agree it will not be boring.

Greetings Delegates!

It's not too late! You can still attend the State Republican Convention on Saturday! You can register online or at the door.

I promise it will not be boring! I have been to a lot of State Conventions, and I guarantee you will remember this one!

Mike McCarville says (see link)

"Elements of the Sooner Tea Party and the Ron Paul for President campaign are prepared for an attempted takeover of the Republican State Convention in Norman on Saturday."

You can sleep in on Sunday! This will be one of the most important State Conventions you will ever attend. Details and location are available through the State GOP offices (click here).

Utah Republican Party investigates scandal at state convention

"MIDVALE – The Utah Republican Party has released the findings of an investigation into the scandal and drama at the Republican State Convention.

The race for the Republican nomination for Utah’s 2nd Congressional District was the site of an uproar at the state convention in April. During a speech to delegates, candidate Milt Hanks accused four of his fellow candidates of creating a conspiracy to prevent candidate Chris Stewart from winning the nomination.

At least one candidate became upset onstage, the microphone was cut off at least once, and state delegates were left confused about the situation. . . . " (cont'd, link to investigation results included in article)

Utah Pulled a Nevada 2008 on them..


Start nominating a friendly chair 1/2 way through to ensue you can finish the convention business. Make sure you have a solid parliamentarian resource that is trustworthy. If you are not sure what to do ask and DONT waste any time figuring it out. Remember it takes a 2/3 vote to ajourn and NEVER ajourn without finishing the business you as a delegate set out to do. That means don't leave, go home early etc.. Finish the business otherwise it's another 4 years and who knows where things will be in 4 years.
