A group of Republican operatives and officials will announce a project devoted to safeguarding the platform. The group, spearheaded by Arizona Republican National Committeeman Bruce Ash and prominent GOP attorney Jim Bopp, will focus on ensuring that like-minded conservatives secure slots on the 112-member Platform Committee. And when the committee meets at the convention, the group will work to ensure that conservatives work in concert toward the same goal.
