JEFFERSON — They are “the base, the bedrock and the foundation” of the region’s Republican Party.And they are getting ready for November. GOP faithful from the 9th Congressional District gathered in Jefferson this weekend, filling a convention hall to elect representatives to this summer’s national party convention and to reignite the fire in their bellies to rally around the Republican cause. Of the nearly 500 people organizers said attended the weekend’s district convention, only six can represent the district this August in Tampa.
