A dozen delegates to the Republican National Convention will be chosen tomorrow.
Iowa Republicans will hold four conventions tomorrow, one in each congressional district. Three national convention delegates will be selected in each district. That means a total of 12 delegates will be elected on Saturday. They could be among the nearly 2500 delegates from around the country to choose the party’s presidential nominee. None of the candidates may win enough delegates before the convention in Cleveland to secure the nomination.
The Iowa GOP’s chairman and the two Iowans who serve on the Republican National Committee will be delegates at the national convention. The Republican Party of Iowa will send 15 other delegates to the national convention in Cleveland. Those delegates will be elected at the party’s state convention in May.
This Saturday, the Iowa Republican Party’s first district convention will be held in the Performing Arts Center on the UNI campus in Cedar Falls. The second district convention will be in Ottumwa, at the Bridge View Center. The third district convention will be held in the Southwestern Community College gym in Creston. The fourth district convention will be at Fort Dodge Senior High School.
