Our Own Rick R. is Running for RNC Committeeman!

Updated: Apr 8

Did you know that Delaware has representation at the Republican National Committee (RNC)? Well we do! We have a National Committee Man (NCM) and a National Committee Woman (NCW). And Delaware Republicans will be voting to see who will represent Delaware at the RNC on Friday May 17th at the Convention Dinner, the night before the Delaware GOP Convention.

For this election there are two candidates for both positions and one of the candidates for NCM is our own Rick Radatovich! You may know Rick as our patriotic, dedicated, numbers-and-results driven Vice RDC of the Mighty 38th District who has stepped up in a huge way helping to lead the 38th District toward success with his goal of 90% voter turnout in the 38th District. The 38th District Republican Club, PAC Board whole heartedly supports and endorses Rick in his candidacy for National Committee Man, and we KNOW he will do a fantastic job representing Delaware at the national level in Republican party matters! Thank you, Rick, for stepping up, we are 100% behind you!

All four candidates will be speaking this Monday, April 8th, at the Sussex Region meeting 630pm, Millsboro Fire Station, so please plan to attend and let your State Committee Members know who you would like them to vote for. State Committee Members are NOT necessarily Convention Delegates. See below for more info on who can vote in this election.

Who Can Vote for National Committee Positions?

The Region Chairs choose 2 delegates from each district to vote at the State Committee Convention, not to be confused with the State Convention delegates. Only the two chosen State Committee members per district will be able to vote for selection of our Delaware RNC Committee Man (NCM) and Committee Woman (NCW) positions.

Traditionally the two selected delegates from each district are the RDC and Vice RDC of that district, as the most active and most likely people to best represent their district. And for the most part that is who the majority of the delegates are.

If you would like to endorse a candidate for NCM or NCW then reach out to 38th RDC and the 38th Vice RDC and let them know how you would like them to represent you! All Republican Senators and Representatives also have a vote, so let Senator Hocker and Representative Ron Gray know your choices as well!
