Clearly the biggest news was the friday vote by the GOP Central Committee to reverse its decision of two years ago and hold a convention in 2013 instead of a primary (by a vote of 47-31). It doesn’t look like there was much news from the Convention itself – see this report. (This site also has some interesting reporting on the 11th CD GOP convention, here.) No indication that the Paul forces came out ahead, as they recently did in Iowa. The DPVA Central Committee (all 300 or so members, not just the Steering Committee), will vote on a primary or convention at our September 2012 meeting.
