The Republican National Committee (RNC) announced Thursday the launch of the Grassroots Assistance Project.
It is an effort to welcome, educate, and engage delegates to the 2016 Republican National Convention.
According to RNC, the Grassroots Assistance Project follows the launch of ConventionFacts.gop and continues the work the RNC is doing to ensure a fair and transparent Convention process.
“We are dedicated to making sure everyone has a full and proper understanding of the convention process and the Grassroots Assistance Project is another step in making that happen,” said chairman Reince Priebus.
“As we lay the groundwork for a fair and transparent Convention, ensuring our delegates are fully informed and prepared is one of our highest priorities.”
This effort is an extension of RNC Rule 15 (a) that states, “The states, in cooperation with the Republican National Committee, shall prepare instructive material on delegate election, selection, allocation, or binding methods and make it available for distribution.”
With roughly 100 days until the Convention, the effort will continue to educate our delegates about how the Convention process works, RNC informed.
The RNC is adding staff in the political and legal departments to aid in the effort. Veteran GOP operatives Chris LaCivita and Steve Munisteri will also help with the initiative and will work alongside former Oklahoma GOP chairman and current RNC State Party director Matt Pinnell.
