Republican National Committee Arrives In Boston

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

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

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

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.

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 through Friday at the Westin Boston Waterfront hotel.
