Minn. GOP panel to weigh rule on delegatesSubmitted by battleforce on Sat, 12/08/2012 - 11:58
ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Central Committee of the Minnesota Republican Party will meet on Saturday, and some are hoping for a resolution opposing a new National Republican Committee rule about national convention delegate selection.
The rule change came about during the Republican National Convention last summer. It ties national convention delegate selection to presidential preference straw poll results in caucus states like Minnesota. Currently, those delegates are elected at local and state conventions.
