I received the
death warrant to my sanity and perfectly good Saturdays in February, March, April, and May official Call for the convening of precinct, county, congressional district, and state conventions in 2013 this past Friday. Precinct Mass Meetings for 80K+ population counties and those with special dispensation will occur on Saturday Feb. 9, 2013. County Conventions (and Precinct Mass Meetings for <80K population counties) will convene on Saturday March 9, 2013. District Conventions will convene on Saturday April 20, 2013, and the State Convention will convene in Athens on May 17th and 18th of 2013. Expect a Peach Pundit Roadshow on May 17th in Athens….details will come later.
Since current state chairman Sue Everhart is term limited by our current rules, that means the top spot is an open seat. A few candidates have already stated their intent of running for the top state (non-public office) Republican, but others will no doubt begin to throw their hat into the ring over the next couple of months.
Two years ago, I began to cover the state chairman elections as well as other interesting tidbits in the Republican convention process. I plan on doing the same thing for the 2013 election cycle. Here’s the deal, I’ll post once a week covering the pressers and other news I hear about the chairman candidates and other interesting GOP races around the state. I retain the right to modify my coverage in frequency and depth of my coverage: i.e., don’t complain to me, Charlie, or the other Peach Pundit staff if your “look who endorsed me this week” presser doesn’t make it to the weekly round-up.
I want to keep coverage fair and interesting. I will do my best to cover all of the candidates for the state chairmanship, but that means I need to get information from those who are running for the top spot. Feel free to send me information about your campaigns…and keep it interesting.
So, there you have it. Let the races begin.
