Republican Convention Update

Next week, Pam Pollard and I will be going to the National Convention early to attend the National Credentials meeting because we are the two elected delegates representing Oklahoma. Several controversial issues are expected to be presented during the Credential meeting that starts, Thursday 25th and goes through Saturday the 27th. Ron Paul supporters from Nevada are expected to appear before the Credentials Committee. The State of Nevada currently has no representation at the National Convention. This should be very interesting. I'll give y'all updates from Minneapolis starting next Thursday.
