State GOP Committeeman to Leave Party (Aug 28, 2012)

The Oklahoma Republican Party's national committeeman skipped the GOP's national convention in Tampa, Fla., this week and says he will register as an independent.

National Committeeman James Dunn told The Associated Press on Tuesday night that he was upset with the nation's two-party system and "totally disagrees" with much of the GOP's state and national platforms.

His absence was noticed during a roll call Tuesday, when Gov. Mary Fallin announced votes from 40 of Oklahoma's 43 delegates. Two Ron Paul supporters who refused to vote for presidential nominee Mitt Romney despite being obligated to do so had their votes voided.

Oklahoma Republican Party Chairman Matt Pinnell said he was not aware Dunn planned to skip the convention.

Dunn is an Oklahoma City attorney. He was elected national committeeman in 2008.
