The Rankin County GOP Chairman Greg Harkins on Saturday refused to hear any motions or nominations from precinct delegates except for those to put forward a previously handpicked slate. The slate of delegates were emailed prior to the meeting and told to fill out a new form to be sent to the state GOP HQ prior to the meeting if the wanted to be considered. This form was not shared in the 2016 materials first sent out by the state GOP.
The results of what is being referred to by some as the MS GOP’s Rankin County Railroad was a group of angry precinct delegates as the chairman adjourned the meeting. See the video by clicking the image below or follow this link (http://youtu.be/fTELidpXQ9Y)
