Mass. GOP to weigh in on party platform
WORCESTER, Mass.—The state's Republican Party is set to decide whether to adopt the national GOP platform as its own.
The Republican State Committee was scheduled to meet in Worcester on Thursday night.
The platform adopted at the Republican National Convention contains strong anti-abortion language that could run into opposition from abortions rights members of the party in Massachusetts.
State GOP spokesman Tim Buckley tells the Telegram & Gazette ( http://bit.ly/PdSsns) that he expected a range of views to be expressed at the meeting, but added that all members of the party share the goal of electing more Republicans in November.
Democrats say a vote by state Republicans against their party's national platform would amount to a rejection of GOP presidential nominee and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's agenda.
