The 2015 North Carolina State GOP Convention
The 2015 North Carolina Republican Convention was held June 5 – 7 in Raleigh, NC. Over 1300 delegates from across the state met to elect a new state chairman (Hasan Harnett) and vice chair (Michelle Nix), adopt a platform, resolutions, and changes to the Plan of Organization. Senator Thom Tillis and Governor Pat McCrory addressed the convention, with special emphasis on the 2016 elections. Lt. Governor Dan Forest met with an overflow crowd of delegates at his hospitality suite Friday evening. Outside of the business sessions delegates heard speeches by Donald Trump and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker as well as presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Dr. Ben Carson. Numerous hospitality suites were open in the Marriott and Sheraton for the enjoyment of delegates and guests, and adjacent to the convention hall vendors, candidates and a variety of organizations had displays with free or for-purchase items. Macon County delegates were inspired by the focus and enthusiasm demonstrated at all events, and returned home with sleeves rolled up, ready for 2016. A few photos from the convention are shown below.
