The reason I'm asking is that the State GOP Chair has told me

The reason I'm asking is that the State GOP Chair has told me he will be the Delegation Chair and if someone wants to arm wrestle him for the position, he'll do it - but he will win anyway. (jokingly of course - but I think he was laying down the law with me in a polite way - we are pretty friendly but he has political aspirations BIG TIME)

He also said that he gets sent everything anyway as the state's GOP Chair and he might as well do it. When I asked what they actually do he told me make travel arrangements and book hotel rooms and fundraising to get everyone there. And they talk to / handle the local press that will be accompanying us to the convention. He suggested that I work the floor and talk to International reporters who will be on the floor.

I said it sounds like a lot of work - all the travel arrangements, why would anyone want this position? He said it will allow him to work with some of his contacts within the GOP and basically network.

This explanation made me think there was more to this and perhaps I should nominate myself - or have one of the RP people nominate me. Of course I'll lose and I'm not sure that it would be worth it to piss off the entire delegation before we even get there.

IS IT WORTH IT?
