Back On: Floor Fight at the RNC


Dear Morning Briefing Subscriber:

Here is some breaking news from the ground in Tampa.

At 2:00 p.m. today in Tampa, the Republican National Committee, led by Team Romney, is moving to shut down conservative grassroots activists. I've been on the phone with several individuals involved in the fight who tell me that the fight is not over, it is only just starting.

Specifically, the media is reporting that the rules fight is over because Team Romney is abandoning Ben Ginsberg's effort to allow candidates to control delegates. Under an initial proposal, delegates would, in effect, be chosen by the presumed nominee's campaign and not based on votes in the states and delegate selection processes in the states.

That issue appears resolved, but several people I've spoken to make clear that Team Romney and the RNC establishment are using that compromise as a red herring to distract from two major rules change proposals that would decimate Republican grassroots and prevent upstart political campaigns.

I have all the details on this story right here at the top of RedState.  I'll monitor it and give you updates later today.

Sincerely yours,

Erick Erickson
