Topeka, KS — Saturday, the Kansas Republican State Committee passed a presidential caucus plan that will put Kansas in the middle of the Republican Presidential nomination battle. According to the plan passed by the state committee, Kansas will have a presidential caucus on Saturday, February 9, 2008.

“I am excited about the opportunity to give Kansans a real voice in the battle for the Republican Presidential nomination,” said Kansas State Republican Party Chairman Kris Kobach. “It has been nearly twenty years since Kansas has held a GOP Presidential Caucus. The caucus is a positive solution allowing Republicans from across the state the opportunity to participate in the process.”

The plan requires that a presidential candidate win two of the four Congressional Districts in order to receive the support of twenty-four of Kansas' thirty-nine delegates.

The plan passed Saturday also detailed the National Delegate Selection Plan that includes a self-nomination procedure for Kansas Republicans interested in attending the 2008 Republican National Convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Self-nomination forms will be available from party headquarters on December 1, 2007 for all Republicans who are interested in the opportunity to attend the 2008 Republican National Convention.

“I look forward to hearing from Republicans across Kansas who are interested in getting involved in the nomination process. I encourage Republicans to contact party headquarters with questions,” said Kobach.
