Kyle Cheney spoke by telephone about the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) Standing Committee on Rules meeting earlier that day during the RNC’s spring meeting in Hollywood, Florida. Members engaged in debate and ultimately defeated attempts to change the rules governing the convention during which the party’s nominee for president will be officially chosen. The proposal, which was sponsored by Solomon Yue, an RNC committeeman from Oregon, was intended to further empower the convention’s delegates. Mr. Yue argued that it would provide the convention with a degree of transparency at a time of unprecedented scrutiny of the party’s internal procedures. Opponents feared any changes would be seen as favoring one candidate over another. close
