UPDATE: Protect your state’s delegates!
Thank you to all who contacted your delegates regarding the proposed rule change at the Republican National Convention. A compromise version of the Rule was agreed to during yesterday’s (8-28-12) Convention proceedings.
UPDATE Aug. 27th:
Shenanigans are happening at the Republican National Convention, and we need your help to protect your state’s delegates!
A proposed rule change would allow the Presidential nominee to “disavow” duly elected delegates and force the states to hold new elections to replace any delegate or alternate deemed unacceptable by the Nominee.
This would not only undermine the will of the electorate and give the presumptive nominee enormous power to block delegates with whom he or she disagrees, it would impose a financial burden on the state to hold new elections to replace the disavowed delegates. States would have to write rules to govern this newly imposed burden.
There is a Minority Report being circulated that would stop this change. We need you to contact your state’s delegates serving on the Rules Committee. These delegates and their contact information is listed below.
Here is a list of delegates serving on the Rules Committee listed alphabetically by state. Please take a moment to find the delegates from your state to urge them sign onto and vote FOR the Minority Report from the Rules Committee to stop the proposed change. The vote is expected to take place Tuesday. Please only contact delegates from your state.
