WAYNE – A trio of northeast Nebraska counties are taking note of a Republican party pre-convention caucus ahead of next month’s event.

According to a release from the Republican Party of Wayne County, Dixon County and Dakota County, the Nebraska Republican Party (NEGOP) State Convention will be held on Saturday, July 9 at the Younes Convention & Conference Center in Kearney.

An important part of the business conducted at this convention will be to elect State Central Committee members (SCC) to represent counties at the State GOP level. A District Chair Representative, Committeeman and Committeewoman will be elected to represent Dakota, Dixon and Wayne counties.

In preparation for that election, leadership of the three counties have scheduled a Pre-Convention Caucus to identify candidates interested in running for these positions. This meeting will take place Sunday, June 12 at 1:30 p.m. from the Wayne Municipal Airport (2304 Hwy 35 East) in the conference room.

NEGOP 3rd District Chairman Ron Schmidt of Ogallala NE will be attending and provide leadership, guidance and education on the process along with conducting the election.

All County leadership (Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer) and delegates elected to the state convention should plan to attend this caucus on June 12.

All registered Republicans living within the counties of Wayne, Dixon and Dakota are invited and encouraged to attend.

There are 93 counties in Nebraska, 80 of which are in the 3rd Congressional District. The 3rd District is divided into 17 SCC Sub-Districts (301 through 317) as Dakota, Dixon and Wayne counties represent SCC Sub-District 316.

This is a great opportunity to meet your County GOP leaders and delegates to the state convention and learn how county parties operate at the state and local level.
