RNC Welcoming Committee Comes to Northern California
Thu Feb 28 2008 (Updated 03/08/08)
"Crash the Convention"
On September 1-4 of 2008, the Republican Party is holding their convention in Minnesota. The RNC Welcoming Committee wants to make sure that "this time the fear-mongers will be met with their own biggest fear: people mobilized, organized, and taking the future back into their own hands."

The RNC Welcoming Committee's Infotour will make six stops in Northern California to share their plans and get input to take back to Minneapolis on their preparations to crash the convention in the Twin Cities in September. The RNC Welcoming Committee states, "understanding that most people can’t make it out to Minnesota before the Convention, we see this tour as an opportunity to bring the Welcoming Committee to you, and to bring your thoughts, ideas and voices back to Minnesota."
