The Alabama Republican Assembly 2008 Presidential Endorsing Convention and Straw Poll is to be held Saturday, January 26th, 2008 at the Marriott Hotel in Birmingham, located just south of the intersection of I-459 and US 280.
The endorsing convention will begin promptly at 10 am and should conclude by 12:00 noon. All dues-paying members of the Alabama Republican Assembly as of 12/26/07 shall be eligible to vote in this important convention.
Conference registration is only the amount of your 2008 dues plus $5.00. thus it is $25 per person or $15 per additional person in a household such as a spouse or eligible child. Since 2008 dues are due in January, this would cover your dues for the year, plus support for the convention.
In addition to the endorsing convention, we will host a concurrent straw poll at the Marriott that will be open to all registered voters in Alabama. Straw poll tickets will be sold for $20 a piece at the door. ALRA delegates will receive a complementary ballot with their registration. The straw poll will open at 10am and close at 11:30am. The results of the straw poll will be announced at the conclusion of the convention.
As we near the February 5th “Super Tuesday” primary in Alabama, top conservative Republican grassroots activists in the state (i.e. you) need to make their Presidential preference known to rank and file Republican voters. This endorsing convention provides you with an opportunity to do just that.
A press release announcing the results of the endorsing convention and straw poll will be released following the meeting.
As a bonus, we have invited Senator Jeff Sessions to address the convention on the very dangerous “Law of the Sea” treaty. Senator Sessions is fast emerging as on of the most important conservative voices in the US Senate. After taking a very principled stand against the Democrats and the Whitehouse on illegal immigration, Sessions is now taking on a treaty that threatens to turn over most of the world’s surface to the United Nations and impose a direct tax on the United States.
Please make it a priority to attend this important endorsing a convention. The year 2008 will be a momentous one in America’s political history. Let’s do our part in letting our voices be heard! Below is a registration form if needed.
