Iowa Republican Party Chairman Danny Carroll announced Saturday, that the location of the nominating convention has been moved from Creston, to Urbandale. The Republican nominee for Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District will be decided at a special nominating convention held on Saturday, June 21st, at the Des Moines Christian School (13007 Douglas Parkway), in Urbandale, as the Creston location announced earlier, is not available due to a scheduling conflict.
513 delegates will represent the 3rd District and select the GOP’s nominee for the 3rd Congressional District. Carroll said “As no candidate received the necessary 35% share of the vote in the primary election, rules state that the party’s nominee will be selected at a convention whose date and location is set by the Chairman.”
The state party will be mailing out notices to delegates and alternates, informing them of additional details for the June 21st special nominating convention. Delegates will credential in between 8:30am-9:45am with the convention being called to order at 10:00am.
