Republican National Committee Heads To Boston For Its Summer Meeting

BOSTON (AP) — The Republican National Committee is heading to Boston for its summer meeting.

Among the headliners for the three-day event is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who will host a Thursday lunch for meeting-goers.

Organizers say the theme of the meeting is “Making It Happen.” They say a portion of the gathering will be devoted to updating members on new political and technology initiatives.

Republicans are trying to regroup after losing a second presidential election last year.

The choice of Boston is interesting for the party.

There are no Republican statewide officeholders. The state’s entire congressional delegation is Democratic. And in the state Legislature, Republicans hold small minorities in both the Massachusetts House and Senate.

The meeting runs from Wednesday through Friday at the Westin Boston Waterfront hotel.
