The Republican National Committee (RNC) launched Thursday ConventionFacts.gop, a new site that, according to RNC, provides an easy way to learn about the 2016 Republican National Convention.
Since 1856, Republican delegates from across the country have gathered to adopt a platform, determine the rules that will govern the party, and nominate a presidential and vice presidential candidate.
Convention delegates have met to conduct their business in this manner for the past 150 years, says RNC, and the goal of ConventionFacts.gop is to serve as an educational tool about how the process works.
The new site helps answer frequently asked questions about the rules, delegates, and exactly what happens at a national party convention.
“ConventionFacts.gop is a tool for voters to learn about convention delegates, rules, and how the overall process works in a simple, easy to understand format,” said RNC chairman Reince Priebus. “Conventions are democracy in action and our Party’s gathering in Cleveland will be an exciting, transparent, and fair process.”
The 2016 Republican National Convention will be held in Cleveland, Ohio at the Quicken Loans Arena July 18-21.
