Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason has been named as Chairman of the Committee of the Call by the Republican National Committee according to this release from the State party.
Pennsylvania Republican National Committeeman Bob Asher and National Committeewoman Christine Toretti were also named to the Committee, which was tasked with issuing the official call for the upcoming Cleveland Convention next July.
“I want to thank Chairman Priebus for selecting me for such an important role in our Party,” Gleason said. “Every four years, the Republican National Convention serves as the kickoff for the general election season. I’m honored to have been picked to lead the Committee on the Call this year.”
In a press release, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said, “I would like to thank Rob Gleason for his hard work as the Chair of the Committee on the Call, as well as the other Committee members in assisting in issuing the final Call of the Convention.”
“Pennsylvania Republicans will play a major role in choosing the next President of the United States,” Asher said. “I’m proud to help represent the Keystone State on this important committee.”
“It’s an honor to be selected for the Republican National Convention’s Committee on the Call,” Toretti said. “The Republican Party in Pennsylvania is strong, and we’re excited to be recognized on a national level.”
DEFINITION OF A CALL: Conventions are a time-honored tradition that date to the 19th century, but they're not legally required by federal or state law, and there's nothing in the Constitution that says they're required to nominate a presidential candidate.
It turns out there are few official, overarching rules for conventions. Each party establishes its own rules for nominating its candidate. Every presidential election cycle, both parties put out an official call announcing the date and site. There's no specific, set date for this call. The Republican National Committee's bylaws for this cycle dictate only that "the Republican National Committee shall issue the call for the next national convention to nominate candidates for the president of the United States and vice president of the United States prior to the year in which the convention is to be held."
