Upper St. Clair Man Chosen for Republican National Convention
Louis Oliverio has been selected as an alternate delegate for August's Republican National Convention.
Going to the Republican National Convention is something Louis Oliverio has wanted to do for a long time, and last Tuesday night, he learned he would get the opportunity.
Oliverio is an alternate delegate for the 18th Congressional District Republican Party and heads to Tampa Bay, FL, in August to be part of the discussion to select a Republican presidential nominee.
"I've always been interested in politics. It's very exciting," Oliverio said.
At the convention, delegates will officially nominate the Republican candidates for president and vice president.
Delegates and Republican leaders will also develop the party's platform of issues and ideas, as well as write the rules to govern the Republican Party for the next four years.
This was Oliverio's first time running to become a delegate to the Republican National Convention.
"A lot of people apply for it, it was quite the experience," he said. "I'm happy I did so well."
