The Republican Party Of Navarro County had convened and adjourned its County Convention meeting on Saturday March 21, 2020, due to the COVID-19 coronavirus national emergency pandemic, to reconvene at a later date and location, at the call of the temporary chair. As a delegate selected from the Precinct Convention, this move was strictly to protect your health with transparency. This move was not intended to disenfranchise any delegate.
