On Saturday, April 16th, five delegates and alternate delegates from the Boyle County Republican party traveled to Bowling Green to participate in the 2nd Congressional District GOP Convention. These delegates had been elected in the Boyle County Republican Mass Meeting held on March 10th.

Those in attendance at the 2nd District Convention included: Stephen Knight (Committee on Permanent Organization), George Coomer (Rules Committee), Mike Harmon (Credentials Committee), James Monroe (Resolutions Committee), and Tom Tye (Nominations Committee).

The 2nd Congressional District is comprised of the west central portion of Kentucky. Of the state’s 46 total delegates at the Republican National Convention, three will represent the 2nd District.

Nominated and elected as delegates or alternate delegates to the Republican National Convention from the 2nd District were:

  • Jim Skaggs, Warren Co. – Delegate
  • Harry Barry, Hardin Co. – Alternate
  • Tom Tye, Boyle Co. – Alternate

The intent of the nomination committee was to select delegates and alternates to represent the breadth of the 2nd District.

Additionally, over the course of the meeting the following individuals were selected as Permanent Committee members:

  • Shaska Hines, Edmonston Co. – Credentials Committee
  • Aaron Whitten, Grayson Co. – Resolutions Committee
  • Greg Goatley, Washington Co. – Rules Committee
