Washington County Republican Party chairman Jim Geldreich and Kathy Kiernan, 5th Congressional District chairwoman, were recently elected as delegates to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
There are only 24 district delegates from Wisconsin and Washington County has two of them. The other 18 at-large delegates were just chosen by the governor and state Senator Duey Stroebel got one of those spots, for a total of 42 delegates.
“By rule of the state constitution, we have to vote for Cruz unless he unbinds us, or gets less than a third of the total delegate vote on any subsequent ballots,” said Geldreich. “If that happens, we are technically free to vote for whoever we want.”
Geldreich and Kiernan will leave July 16; the convention is July 18-21. This is Geldreich’s second national convention; he was at the 2012 convention as an alternate.
