OREGON REPUBLICAN PARTY GRASSROOTS ELECT NATIONAL CONVENTION DELEGATES
WILSONVILLE, OR - On Saturday, June 4th, over 650 Oregon Republican Precinct Committee Persons from across the state met at the State Fairgrounds in Salem and voted for delegates to the National Republican Party Convention.
Based on the results of Oregon’s May 17 Primary Election, 10 At Large delegates and one delegate from each of Oregon’s five congressional districts will vote for Donald Trump for President in Cleveland this July. Senator Ted Cruz and Governor John Kasich each will have five delegates as well.
The purpose of Saturday’s Convention was principally to elect delegates to the National Republican Convention. The convention took nearly 11 hours and involved other party business including the election of alternate delegates and other party positions.
“Congratulations to the winning delegates and alternates who will be representing Oregon at the National Convention,” Chair Bill Currier remarked. “Many thanks to all of Oregon’s Precinct Committee Persons who participated on behalf of the Republican constituents that elected them. We look forward to proudly representing all of them in Cleveland.”
After the national delegates were elected, these delegates immediately met to choose from among themselves the Chair of the Oregon delegation and the two members of each of the four national convention committees, which are Platform, Credentials, Rules and Organization. Each delegate will be responsible for arranging and paying for their own transportation to the national convention in Cleveland, Ohio, taking place July 18-21.
