State GOP committee changes delegate selection process

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Republican State Executive Committee voted at its summer meeting this weekend to change how delegates will be selected for the 2020 Republican National Convention.

The committee, in a 92-12 vote, approved giving President Donald Trump’s campaign and committee members the chance to approve delegates for the convention, which is to be held next August in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“I’m excited that Republican State Executive Committee members overwhelmingly approved a plan that is supported by President Donald Trump’s campaign that will streamline the process used for delegate selection for the 2020 Republican National Convention,” said Melody Potter, the state party’s chairwoman.

The decision was made during the state party’s annual summer meeting at the Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs.
