RNC Delegate Badge Hijackers?Submitted by paulitesociety on Thu, 08/16/2012 - 02:45
I am an RNC delegate. One of the delegate staffers in my state has added to our daily agenda that he will pass out the delegate badges at breakfast every morning. I infer that he will collect them every evening. Have delegates from other states or from previous conventions heard of this policy?
I have been told that it is customary for delegates to share their badges with alternates as a courtesy. In my state many of the delegates are Ron Paul supporters but almost none of the alternates are. How is this working in other states? I don't want to miss the chance to nominate Ron Paul because I don't have my badge.
Any advice from other delegates?
