National Presidential Nominating Convention & Committee Meeting
The CPNH Delegates and National Committee Members drove to Salt Lake City, Utah, last week to attend the National Presidential Nominating Convention and Committee Meeting and boy, do we have some exciting updates!!The first two days of the four-day convention were spent in meetings – reviewing state credentials, going over the rules of the convention, and looking at proposals to update the Party Platform. There were so many good issues raised, and it was great to be surrounded by such passionate and intelligent constitutionalists! The NH crew attended every meeting to get as up to speed as possible with how they structure their conventions and how things are run. It was also a great crash course on Parliamentary Procedure/Robert’s Rules of Order! The second two days were full of voting, speeches, and musical performances by local groups. We heard from 7 of 8 Presidential Nominees, from Donna Brandenburg (MI State Vice Chair & Owner of Brandenburg News Network) about election integrity, Janine Hansen (Western Regional Chair and NV State Chair) about why we should be against an Article V Convention, Joel Skousen (UT member and Presidential Nominee) about the future of our country and how to recruit, Marshall Wilson (WV Candidate for Governor) on how to restore our Republic, and Ben McClintock (UT member) on how to restore our freedoms and be the WORST Global Citizen ever.
