Members of two state political parties are holding conventions this weekend. The North Carolina Republican Party is welcoming many of its members to Charlotte. Party leaders say they'll use the event toemphasize new campaign approaches.
GOP supporters want the party to make an effort to reach out to more minority conservatives. Chief of Staff Mike Rusher says the party also wants to change its campaign approach from concentrating on heavily-populated voting districts to what he calls "a 100-county focus".
