Florida GOP to round out 99 delegates on May 14 in Tampa

Florida GOP officials will select 15 at-large delegates next weekend in Tampa, part of a two-day quarterly meeting that will feature a presentation from Google, a “next generation GOP roundtable” and breakfast with Dan Bongino.

Several U.S. Senate candidates are expected to attend the May 13-14 meeting at the Doubletree on W Cypress St.

But the action will be with the delegate selection at the 12:30 p.m. Saturday meeting of the RPOF Executive Board.

Party Chairman Blaise Ingoglia has been sifting through more than 600 applications and will submit recommendations to the board. After the 15 have been selected, the party will release names of the total 99 delegates.

“With the RNC convention only months away, our spring quarterly meeting will be a significant event with vigorous grassroots workshops and the selection of 15 of our 99 delegates who will represent our state in Cleveland," Ingoglia said in a statement. "With the tremendous gains the Florida GOP has already made this year, our quarterly meeting will serve to continue building our state party as a turnkey organization.”
