Trillo, Mumford win GOP committee seats

Curiously absent from today's ProJo coverage of last night's RI Republican convention is the skinny on what happened with the races for national committeeman and national committeewoman.

Will Ricci at the Ocean State Republican fills in the details:

In one of the longest conventions ever (okay, that may be an exaggeration, but not by much; we adjourned well after midnight following several near revolts by the membership), and after three highly contested rounds of balloting, the delegates to the Rhode Island Republican Party State Convention elected Rep. Carol Mumford of Scituate to fill the remainder of National Committeewoman Eileen Slocum’s current term, as well as to be the National Committeewoman for the next four years. The convention also elected Rep. Joseph Trillo of Warwick to be the new National Committeeman. His four-year term will take effect following the 2008 Republican National Convention in September.

Jon Scott of Providence received the party endorsement for US Congress (Dist. 1)

Mark Zaccaria of North Kingstown received the party endorsement for US Congress (Dist. 2)

Robert Tingle of Westerly received the party endorsement for US Senate.
