Greene County Republicans to Hold Caucus this Weekend

http://ozarkspub.vo.llnwd.net/o37/KSMU/audio/mp3/greene-county-republicans-hold-caucus-weekend_33739.mp3

Greene County Republicans will hold their caucus this Saturday. It's open to any Republican who lives in the county. KSMU’s Rebekah Clark has details.

 

The Caucus will be held at University Plaza in Springfield. Registration opens at 8 a.m.; the Caucus is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.


Danette Proctor is Chair of the Greene County Republican Committee.


“Our Caucus’ are very grassroots; it’s very important that people do come. At our county level, we will be electing 111 delegates and up to that many alternates that will go on to the Congressional Convention, and then we will also elect 111 delegates and up to 111 alternates that will go on to the State Convention.”

Proctor says those delegates will vote on who will get to go to the Republican National Convention as delegates. The delegates will then represent the state in the process of selecting a Republican Presidential Nominee.

“Also another big thing that will be happening at our Caucus, you’ll be able to add any language, or delete, or change anything in the 2012 Missouri Republican Draft State Platform.”


She does ask that participants bring proposed changes in writing. She says it does have to be signed and must include your contact information.

The Democratic Caucus for Greene County is scheduled to be held Thursday, March 29.
