ANNAPOLIS – The Maryland Republican Party will hold their annual Spring Convention at the Solomons Holiday Inn Convention Center and Marina (155 Holiday Drive, Solomons, MD20688) on April 27th and 28th.
Alex X. Mooney, Chairman of the Maryland Republican Party, expressed his excitement about the Convention by saying, “This weekend is about uniting behind our candidates, electing our Committeeman and Committeewoman to the Republican National Committee, and selecting our delegates to the Republican National Convention in August. It is the time to begin working together to elect our presumptive nominee Mitt Romney, propel Dan Bongino to the US Senate, and send our Repbulican candidates for Congress to Washington.”
After the election on April 3rd, 2012, Governor Mitt Romney captured all 3 Delegates from each of Maryland’s 8 Congressional Districts to walk away with a total of 24 Delegates and 24 Delegate Alternates. Because Governor Romney captured the Maryland popular vote, the 10 Delegates-At-Large selected at this weekend’s Spring Convention are bound to vote for him at the Republican National Convention.
The 2012 Republican National Convention will be held at the Tampa Bay Times ForumAugust 27-30, 2012. It is organized and managed by the Committee on Arrangements (COA) of the Republican National Committee (RNC), the convention will host 2,286 delegates and 2,125 alternate delegates from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and five territories.
The convention will also include approximately 15,000 credentialed media—an international press corps second only in size to this summer’s London Olympic Games—as well as a global audience that will witness a “convention without walls” thanks to our Internet and social media efforts.
