The Nationalist Platform meeting stated off with the party chairmen and secretary introducing each other and briefly going over Platform Meeting procedure. The first topic covered was the planks of the party–the main ideals. Examples included their stance on taxes, renewable energy, marijuana use, and other hard hitting topics. The most fascinating parts of establishing the party planks were the debate and discussion that were held. At times, they became a little heated but always very passionate. They then moved to introducing the candidates from Auditor to Lt. Governor. All positions had six or more candidates, which concluded with a question and answer session for the candidates. Once all the debates and introductions finished, they ended with a quick summary of the meeting.
