Georgia is sending 76 delegates and 73 alternates to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, along with many of the state’s top politicians and operatives.
Donald Trump coasted to a victory in Georgia’s March primary and much of the party has united behind the billionaire since he locked up the nomination.
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.
