Grassroots activists, please see the ACTION STEP at the end of this e-mail.
Kathy Haigler has been a grassroots activist in the Republican Party since 1992. When the Republican Party of Texas (RPT) changed its method of selecting at-large delegates and alternatives and gave that responsibility to a National Nominations Committee, Kathy Haigler was chosen in 2000 at the Texas State Convention in Houston to serve on the very first committee under the new rule.
As that 2000 Convention, when the National Nominations Committee began to take nominations, one member started by naming several popular Republican Senators. Haigler called a point of order and said that if they continued to put State Senators and other elected officials on the list, there would be no room for the grassroots delegates, which that Committee had been organized to elect.
