The New Hampshire Republican Party has adjourned its state convention without changing its party platform.

Saturday's meeting at Inter-Lakes High School in Meredith was held to consider platform changes. The changes included stating the party supports a comprehensive fight against the opioid crisis in New Hampshire, including education, rehabilitation and interdiction.

Delegates also were set to decide whether to add a statement saying that the party believes someone who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is an ally and not a traitor.

The convention was closed to the media.

WMUR-TV first reported the convention adjourned Saturday without taking action on proposals to drop the platform's longtime stated support for marriage only "between one man and one woman."
