  1. There will be 80 citizens on 8th CD Committee and the involved Legislative Committees making 92 votes. The primary will consist of wooing those 80 voters.

    I might say these folks are ‘somewhat’ more grass roots instead of ‘far more’.

    Thanks for this information, Bill. Pardon my ignorance here, but I was told that the County Committee Chairs, County Committee Vice Chairs, Legislative District Chairs, and Legislative District Vice Chairs of the MO8 district will be the people who determine the nominee (presumably through a voting process). Are the people in the aforementioned positions the ones that actually make up the MO GOP 8th District Congressional Committee?

    Bill –

    Here is the most up-to-date information I’ve seen regarding the nomination process on the GOP side of things. I just saw this posted on the Facebook page of “Missouri 8th Congressional District Republicans” this morning. I thought I would share it with you in case you haven’t already gotten this information:

    8th Congressional Republican Committee
    Nomination Meeting
    Proposed Rules

    1. Robert’s Rules of Order, Newly Revised 11th Edition, shall govern this meeting unless they are in conflict with the Rules of Missouri Revised Statute or the rules agreed to by this committee. All decisions by the Parliamentarian are final.

    2. Eligible voters for this nomination meeting include the duly elected (according to Missouri Revised Statute) Chair and Vice Chair of each County Republican Committee, and the Chair and Vice Chair of each Republican Legislative Committee located in whole or in part in the 8th Congressional District. Each position listed has a vote to cast if the person holding that position is present.

    3. Nominations of a Candidate may not exceed 1 minute. No second will be necessary and an individual committee member may only nominate one candidate. After the floor has been closed to nominations, each candidate, in the order they were nominated, will be allowed to address the committee for up to 3 minutes.

    4. After a vote is taken, if no candidate has received the Missouri Revised Statute required 50% +1 minimum needed to receive the nomination, the candidate receiving the fewest number of votes will be eliminated from the nomination process and a new vote will be taken. If there is a tie between two or more candidates for the fewest votes received, and that tie is 2 votes or less per candidate, all of those tying candidates are eliminated from consideration. If the total vote for each candidate tied is 3 votes or more, a new election will be held without a candidate having been eliminated. Any candidate that gets no votes during any elections will be eliminated in addition to the candidate that receives the fewest votes. After a vote has been taken, and if no candidate has received the required majority, any current candidate or committee member may request that the body stand at ease for up to 5 minutes. If no request is made, then the meeting will proceed.
