The presidential campaign of former President Donald Trump on Tuesday released its official delegate committee slate for Tennessee delegates to the 2024 Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

With the slate, the Trump campaign is encouraging its Tennessee delegates to vote for candidates National Delegate Selection Director John Findlay “extensively vetted” for “very specific roles” on committees at the Republican Party convention in July, according to an email by Findlay reviewed by The Tennessee Star.

The Trump campaign slate of candidates suggests delegates vote for Chelsea Rose and former Representative Jimmy Duncan for the Republican National Committee’s Permanent Organization Committee, Sharron Anderson and Dennis Beavers for the Credentials Committee, Gloria Giorno and Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden for the Platform Committee, and Mya Conrad and Stevie Giorna for the Rules Committee.

In his email to delegates, Findlay warned, “It has come to the campaign’s attention that several individuals, who were openly supportive of other presidential candidates during the primary campaign, are lobbying to serve on committees at President Trump’s convention,” and called it “insulting” to the former president.

“The President NEEDS loyalists on these committees so there is no attempt to undermine him like the Cruz campaign did in 2016. If someone was not with the 75%+ Republicans who supported Trump in the primary, they should not be on a committee,” Findlay urged Tennessee’s Republican delegates.

Findlay referenced the July 18, 2016 rules challenge brought by supporters of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who by then had recently lost the race for the presidential nomination and conceded the race to Trump.

After that challenge unsuccessfully concluded, Breitbart reported that Cruz backers previously refused multiple attempts at negotiation to instead create a “spectacle on the floor of the convention where it looks like there was a battle inside the party.”

The Trump campaign official also wrote that delegates have no reason to doubt the conservative credentials of the Republican Party platform under the former president’s leadership.

Findlay wrote, “the media and several bad actors have spread rumors regarding the Platform in hopes of sowing discord,” and pledged the party platform under Trump “will be pro-life, America First, and deeply conservative.”

The email from Findlay comes as a report claims supporters of former presidential candidate Nikki Haley are planning to orchestrate a “coup” at the convention to block Trump from becoming the Republican nominee.
