Active Republicans might want to start looking for good deals on rooms in Tacoma at the end of May 2012. That's where the Washington State Republican Party will hold its convention.
The state GOP announced today it chose the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center for its biannual gathering. They drew some 1,700 delegates to Vancouver this year, and considering 2012 is a presidential year, an even larger crowd can be expected in Tacoma.
Been 25 years since the state GOP held a convention in Tacoma, party officials said.
