Steele to Headline State GOP Convention

West Virginia's Republican Party plans to gather Saturday in Flatwoods for its annual summer convention, MetroNews reports.

The party touts the GOP's Michael Steele, former Maryland lieutenant governor and 2006 Senate candidate, as the event's keynote speaker. "A representative of the McCain campaign will meet with the state GOP's statewide candidates Saturday afternoon," MetroNews reported.

"The convention will choose 27 alternate delegates to the Republican National Convention later this summer," MetroNews explains. "The state GOP chose its at-large delegates at its Super Tuesday presidential meeting back in February and a total of nine delegates during the May Primary Election."
