LP017: Katie Witt on being an RNC delegate

On Episode 17 of Longmont Politics, we concluded our interview with Longmont Ward 2 City  Councilmember Katie Witt where she talked about the process of being elected as a delegate to the Republican National Convention.  We talked about some of the antics of the Ron Paul supporters, and how Mitt Romney was considered the conservative alternative four years ago, but now is considered a more liberal candidate for the Republican Party comparatively speaking.  I also asked Councilmember Witt about questions of her public support of a national candidate in the presidential election as an elected city representative.
