Texas- Needs 88 More "At-Large-Delegates" To The National Convention. √ DeadLine 31 MaySubmitted by HonorGod on Fri, 05/25/2012 - 11:18
TEXAS- BECOME a AT-LARGE DELEGATE to the National Convention.
There are 44/44 Primary and Alternate National Delegate seats open. Apparently it is open to anyone even if you are not selected during your COUNTY Convention Breakout. Must be completed by 31 May 2012
Interested in Being a National Delegate?
Texas delegates to the Republican National Convention are chosen in two ways:
1. By Congressional District Caucus
2. At-Large by the National Nominations Committee
All delegates chosen will serve in the same capacity at the Republican National Convention (ie. there is no difference between congressional district delegates and at-large delegates, other than the way they are selected.)
Section 7. Election of At-Large Delegates and Alternates at State Convention
a. As provided for in Rule No. 34A, each Congressional District Caucus shall meet at the State Convention, and elect one (1) person to serve as a member of the National Nominations Committee from persons nominated from the floor at the said meeting. Election to this committee shall be by majority vote. In the same manner, each Congressional District Caucus may recommend the name of one (1) member for consideration by the National Nominations Committee as a National Convention delegate or alternate, but the National Nominations Committee is not required to accept such recommendation, in accordance with The Rules of the Republican Party.
b. At the State Convention, the National Nominations Committee shall meet to select nominees for all at-large delegates and alternate delegates, and consider the recommended names of members of the Congressional District Caucuses for possible selection as National Convention Delegates and Alternates. Those individuals who have access to the floor of the National Convention by virtue of their office shall be prohibited for selection as an at-large national delegate, by the National Nominations Committee.
What are our chances of being selected by the committee? NONE, if you do not apply!
