Update (05/14/2009): A little change; I’ve decided to concentrate the number of precincts per county first and the number of currently serving Committeemen in each county before drilling down to the precinct level.

What is the Committeeman Project? Read all about it here. Achance’s comment here neatly captures one of the whys of what we’re doing; returning control of the GOP back to the base and away from the consultants, lobbyist and hack incompetent political operatives in Washington DC and the state capitals.

We need to organize at the precinct, district, and state level so that you cannot win a Republican endorsement, caucus, or primary without being vetted by activist Republicans, rather than a group of lobbyists in a hotel suite or Capitol office.

Rather than waiting for some miracle (H/T: Jack Savage), I’m thinking we can get the ball rolling here on RS by utilizing our numbers and getting answers to some basic questions … just in case.

The beginning of most projects is research. We need to know;

  • … how many precincts there are in each of the nation’s 3140 counties,
  • … how many and which of these precincts have Republican Precinct Committeemen,
  • … what ZIP code (or codes) correspond to a particular precinct,
  • … how does one become a Precinct Committeeman in a particular locale (i.e. state, county),
  • … etc.

In the following weeks, I will be opening individual diaries for each of the fifty states with their own versions of the following table e.g. when it’s Louisiana’s turn “Parrish” will replace “County” and when it’s Michigan’s turn “Delegate” will replace “Committeeman.” I will be regularly updating the tables in the main body of the diary, relying on my fellow RedStaters via the comments to help me gather the information to input into the fields/columns for each state.
