GOP names 2012 site selection committee

The GOP has gotten a head start on the Democrats this cycle, naming their Site Selection Committee for the 2012 Republican National Convention:

RNC Site Selection Committee Members

Holly Hughes, Michigan National Committeewoman (Committee Chairman)

Midwestern Region:
Kevin DeWine, Ohio Republican Party Chairman
Mary Buestrin, Wisconsin National Committeewoman
Alternate: Helen Van Etten, Kansas National Committeewoman

Northeastern Region:
John Frey, Connecticut National Committeeman
Virginia "Ginny" Haines, New Jersey National Committeewoman
Alternate: Betsy Werronen, District of Columbia National Committeewoman

Southern Region:
Alec Poitevint, Georgia National Committeeman
Cindy Costa, South Carolina National Committeewoman
Alternate: Ruth Ulrich, Louisiana National Committeewoman

Western Region:
Bruce Hough, Utah National Committeeman (Committee Co-Chairman)
Lilly Nuñez, Colorado National Committeewoman
Alternate: Randy Ruedrich, Alaska Republican Party Chairman

The committee will recommend a host city to the full RNC, which will have the final say on the decision.

As we noted, the GOP has a strange rule that prohibits members of the site selection committee from representing states that will bid for the convention. But I would imagine that any committee member from a specific state would just resign rather than keep a home city from bidding for the convention.

Chicken and Egg (0.00 / 0)
At this point of the process, I would think state party leaders would have an idea of if some city in their state was seriously considering pursuing the national convention.  As such, I think you can pretty much write Atlanta, New Orleans, Denver, Cleveland, Milwaukee, and Detroit as not interested in the GOP convention.
