MNGOP has been working very hard to put these important BPOU conventions together. They will conduct 93 of them from March 28 to April 18,2020. Your convention may not be what you are used to but you will be able to endorse your non contested candidates and elect CD and State delegates. Your patience will be appreciated.
The CD3 convention has been rescheduled to Thursday, April 30, at 7PM. Like the BPOU conventions, it too will be an online virtual event. Watch for your convention call, which will come from the Republican Party of Minnesota
