Right now at the state Republican convention, they’re counting how many delegates are left on the floor. The magic number is 676. Any fewer than that and there’s not a quorum, which means adjournment is imminent.
After the platform was adopted, which was about an hour ago, people started filtering out. Then it came time to discuss resolutions, a thick packet of proposed add-ons.
A couple people asked for an early adjournment, but nobody bit. Instead, they just kept leaving.
Which brings us to now: All remaining delegates are seated on the floor while organizers count the remaining delegates. People are a bit antsy: The scheduled end is 5 p.m., and it looks like, if a quorum isn’t here, they won’t have time to persuade enough people to return.
