Presidential Candidate Ron Paul will be in Rochester, Minnesota Friday morning, May 30, 7:30 AM to speak to MN GOP delegates and alternates, although the Republican Party of Minnesota will not allow him to speak in the convention itself. Details to follow.
Anyone can attend the upcoming IL Gop Convention as a guest, even if you were not appointed a delegate or alternate. On tap are votes on the new state platform, new national committeeman and the 10 additional delegates to the Republican National Convention. The fee for all attendees is 50 dollars. The convention hotel is reportedly fully booked; area hotels may still have rooms available at reasonable rates.
