BOSTON, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the wake of concern among Massachusetts republican voters that incumbent Republican National Committeeman Ron Kaufman, who sits on the RNC's rules committee, is plotting to manipulate the convention rules to deny Donald Trump the Republican presidential nomination, long-time republican activist Jack E. Robinson today announced his candidacy for Massachusetts Republican National Committeeman.
"We cannot afford to have in Cleveland this summer a repeat of the 2014 MassGOP state convention, where ballot and tally sheet manipulation by Kaufman sought to keep Mark Fisher off the gubernatorial ballot," said Robinson. "I am running to make sure that Donald Trump, who won 49% of the vote here three weeks ago, gets a fair deal."
Robinson's most recent project, Fair Districts Mass, is credited with creating voting districts during the last redistricting in 2012 to address under-representation of minority voters within Massachusetts congressional and legislative districts.
Robinson has started a Facebook page called Fair Deal Mass. The election for Republican national committeeman will take place at the next MassGOP state committee meeting, scheduled for April 5, 2016.
