Updated: After a break to gather the reconcile the credentials committee report with the delegates actually in attendance,
Convention Chairman Billy Miller (Mecklenburg) reconvened the group with a message from U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (NC-R).
The pre-recorded message provided a hilarious salute to former 6th District Rep.Howard Coble. Hopefully, the NCGOP will post this on its website, as it would be impossible to adequately describe what the delegates and guests saw.
Next, the chairman of the credentials committee presented delegate report from each county. Over 2000 delegates registered to attend the weekend and 800 delegates registered to take part on Friday afternoon. Friday is generally the lesser attended day.
While people milled about inside and outside the convention hall, the candidates for party chairman and vice chairman pressed the flesh, trying to gather votes for the Saturday elections.
More to come..
