HawkeyeGOP: National platform committee

Excerpted from this post at HawkeyeGOP

We had the first meeting of the national platform committee yesterday
in preparation for next week's convention. I have been impressed with
our chairman Congressman Kevin McCarthy of California and our
co-chairman Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina. I have had a
chance to talk to delegates from all over the US and among the
highlights are the two sitting right next to me. One is a law
professor who in his spare time defends cities and states who are
trying to enforce immigration policies. The other is another lawyer
who works with a variety of well-known Christian organizations.
Yesterday was only the preliminary meetings but we have already
started up some good discussions. It will be interesting because we
only have two working days to complete the platform. Previous
conventions have taken as many as five.
