761 delegates and 30 guests registered today for the Middlesex County GOP convention which will take place on March 27, according to Chairman Joe Leo.
Leo said that the registration was about double that of the 2006 convention, the last "off-year" congressional election. Leo said that the site of the convention may be moved to accomodate the over 800 people he expects to attend. The convention is currently schedule to be at the Middlesex County Vocational School in East Brunswick. A change, if any, will be posted on the party website.
Leo said the the Gooch campaign from CD 6 and the Sipprelle campaign from CD 12 both appeared to be well represented among delegates registering, but that it is that a visual indicator is not necessarily an indication of the strength of a candidates support because several people showed up submitting numerous registrations.
