Today, Republicans across the state will take another step in the convention step process, but will have the first shot of electing the folks who will actually nominate the Republican candidate for president. Most of the delegates elected today will be legally bound to Newt Gingrich for the first two ballots (unless he were to release them). Out of 76 delegates to the Republican National Convention, 42 delegates and 42 alternates will be elected today (3 delegates and 3 alternates from each of Georgia’s 14 congressional districts).
This will be the first convention for the 14th Congressional District, and I have the honor of serving as the resolutions chairman for our convention. Feel free to give updates on what’s going on around the state in your respective districts in the comments.
