PASCO – The state Republican Party convention wraps up Saturday in Pasco.
The nearly 2,000 attendees will be busy electing their final delegates to the national Republican Party convention in Cleveland in July. They’ll also be considering some planks for the party platform.
The convention began Wednesday at an agricultural and trade center in Pasco.
The convention will pick Washington’s 44 delegates to the national GOP convention in Cleveland in July. But those delegates will not know who they are supporting until after the results of the Washington primary election on Tuesday.
On the Washington ballot, Republicans can choose among Trump, and his former challengers Ted Cruz, John Kasich or Ben Carson, who remain on the ballot.
