Placeholder Image

The First Congressional District Committee of the Georgia Republican Party will hold its district convention from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Dorchester Civic Center, 1804 Islands Highway in Midway.

The district is a step toward selecting who will represent the 1st District at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July.

County conventions in March selected delegates and alternates, based on 2012 Republican Presidential county vote totals, to the district and state conventions. The Georgia GOP State Convention will be held in June in Augusta.

Georgia gets 76 delegates to the RNC, with 42 of those delegates coming from selection by the state’s 14 congressional district committees. In addition to those selected by the district convention, there are 36 at-large delegates elected at the state convention. Two hundred twenty delegates and alternates are registered to attend the 1st District convention Saturday.
