Over 400 Alabama Republican Party State Executive Committee members, Republican elected officials and candidates gathered at the Hotel at Auburn University on Saturday, August 24, 2919 for the party’s bi-annual meeting. The body focused its work on several resolutions and prepared for the upcoming 2020 Alabama Republican Primary.
ALGOP Chairman Terry Lathan issued the following comment at the conclusion of the meeting:
“I am so proud of our members. While we truly are the ‘big tent’ party, with a variety of ideas on how to accomplish our goals, our membership worked respectfully together in order to make our party stronger. We surpassed our goals in a solid unifying meeting to Keep America Great and win back the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Doug Jones who repeatedly ignores the majority of Alabamians.”
The ALGOP State Executive Committee passed the following two resolutions regarding the the 2020 Republican Primary:
The 2020 Presidential Preference Primary Resolution, establishing qualifying procedures, dates and fees for candidates wanting to run in the Alabama Republican Presidential Primary on Tuesday, March 3, 2020, as well as the process to elect Republican National Convention delegates and alternates.
The 2020 Primary Resolution, establishing qualifying procedures, dates and fees for all other elected positions on the 2020 Alabama Republican Primary ballot.
