State GOP Prepares to Discuss Changes in Nominating Process

Posted April 12th, 2013 @ 3:10pm

The Utah Republican Central Committee, meeting Saturday, apparently won’t even consider a change in convention candidate nomination rules that would address a major complaint by Utah voters: The ability of a few hundred state GOP delegates to drive relatively popular Republican incumbents from office.

In short, even with a long list of possible candidate nomination changes, Utah GOP bosses would still be able to boot from office incumbents like former Sen. Bob Bennett (in 2010) and former Gov. Olene Walker (in 2004).

Utahns were dismayed, polls showed, in both years that they never got a say in the forced retirements of Walker and Bennett, who didn’t make it through the multiple rounds of convention delegate voting.

GUEST ALERT: Former Senatorial and Congressional Candidate Cherilyn Eager joins Rod at 4:35pm to discuss to nominating proposals.
