Republicans in their state convention Saturday passed eight resolutions, including one expressing displeasure over the failure to enact laws for religious-liberty and guns on college campuses.

The 3,500 party regulars also elected 31 delegates to their national convention in Cleveland next month, defeating a slate proposed by supporters of former presidential candidate Ted Cruz.
The votes came during the second day of the confab at the Augusta Convention Center, but it was followed by a dinner. A prayer breakfast this (SUNDAY) morning is the final event on the agenda that began with an executive committee dinner Thursday night.

Party Chairman John Padgett said the convention had more rallies, receptions, dinners and auxiliary meetings than any state Republican convention in the country.
