|5th District Republicans to 'caucus' in West Monroe|
Registered Republicans in the 5th congressional district have an opportunity to vote Tuesday, Jan. 22, for delegates to the 2008 Louisiana Republican Convention.
Delegates at the state Republican convention will pick delegates to represent the state party at the Republican National Convention.
Voting will take place from 5-8 p.m. Tuesday at the West Monroe Convention Center.
Similar caucus sites will be held in other congressional districts.
Louisiana will have 47 delegates and 44 alternates at the national convention, which will be held in Minneapolis, Minn.
Rep. Kay Kellogg Katz, who is a Republican national committeewoman for Louisiana, already has a delegate spot under Republican National Committee rules. She will be joined by Republican Party of Louisiana chairman Roger F. Villere, and national committeeman Ross Little Jr., who both are automatic national convention delegates.
The 105 state convention delegates will vote to determine which delegates and alternates will attend the national convention. The state delegates also will decide on an official platform for the Louisiana Republican Party.
Any Louisiana Republican can attend the state convention and ask to be a national delegate, but only those chosen by the state delegates will attend the national convention, Katz said.
Each of the state's seven congressional districts on Tuesday will elect 15 delegates and 15 alternates to attend the state Republican convention.
"We're not going in to vote for the presidential candidates. This is only to elect the delegates for the Republican State Convention," Katz said of Tuesday's caucus.
This is a new procedure, Katz said, and she admits it has pros and cons, but she said it is what the majority of the Louisiana Republican Party wanted.
Any registered Republican will be able to vote in Tuesday's caucus as long as they were registered by Nov. 30, 2007. Voters will be asked to present a driver's license or another valid ID.
The state convention will be held beginning at 10 a.m. Feb. 16 at the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge.
In a news release announcing the procedures, Villere said, "all of Louisiana's 2008 national convention delegates will be uncommitted, except that if a presidential candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote in the Feb. 9, 2008, presidential preference primary. State party rules require 20 of Louisiana's at-large delegates to support that candidate on the first ballot of the national convention. If no presidential candidate receives a majority on Feb. 9th, the at-large delegates will be uncommitted."
