RNC 2016: Georgia Republicans are set for July 18-21 convention

Georgia Republicans are set for the July 18-21 bash in Cleveland.

RELATED: The Democratic National Convention

The Georgia GOP has finalized its list of 76 delegates headed to the Republican National Convention for the likely coronation of presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

The billionaire coasted to a victory in Georgia’s March primary and much of the party has united behind Trump since he locked up the nomination.

Yet some supporters of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and other Trump rivals hold out hope they can block his coronation, and many of their supporters won delegate slots at a round of votes in April.

Only a handful of politicians will be headed to Ohio as delegates, but Gov. Nathan Deal and Sens. Johnny Isakson and David Perdue are among the GOP officials planning to attend as guests.
