Clark County GOP to hold convention Saturday



Mike Gaston, Clark County Republicans’ executive director, said he expects approximately 1,700 people to attend the Clark County GOP convention this weekend.

Registration opens at 8 a.m. Saturday at the Hilton Vancouver Washington, 301 W. Sixth St.

There’s a $15 registration fee, Gaston said. While attendees include 1,000 delegates and 700 alternate delegates, observers can attend, he said.

The convention will start at 9 a.m., and candidates for office will be allowed to make a three-minute speech. Attendees also will decide on a party platform and elect delegates to go to the state convention.

Delegates selected at the state convention will go to the national convention, where the Republican Party will make its presidential nomination official.

Clark County Democrats will have their convention on April 28.
