Republicans Clamor for Primary Ballot in Florida

October 24th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

Florida Republicans may not get all of their delegates to the national convention because the state may be penalized for moving the primary to January, but the state party os trying to make sure people know they will get a chance to vote for their favorite candidate. The party has until October 31st to submit the list of qualified candidates. Today, Attorney General Bill Mc Collum delivered a letter signed by Rudy Giuliani requesting he be on Floridas ballot.

”Im here representing my campaign, Rudy Giuliani as Florida state chairman and I have an official letter signed by Rudy that requests his name be put on the ballot this next January for our presidential primary,” state GOP chairman Jim Greer said. “Im delivering it to you so you have it in time to ship it to the Secretary of State as I know youre going to do on the 31st.

“Well, we will do that and were looking forward to having the mayor as a candidate for president in Florida,” McCullum replied.

“Were looking forward to that and of course on my end of it, you cant say it, Im looking forward to his being our next Presidential nominee,” Greer said.

“Im going to get this in and he will be on the ballot in Florida,” McCullum said.

Each of the GOP candidates that participated in last Sundays debate will be on the states primary ballot.
