The proposals were submitted by former
state GOP chair Jennifer Horn.
Horn told WMUR-TV that convention
delegates voted to disqualify her and her husband, Bill Horn, as
delegates, leaving the proposals without a qualified delegate to

the New Hampshire Republican Party,” Horn said.
Delegates voted to adjourn without
taking action an any proposed changes to the party platform.
