What We’re Doing for the Republican National Convention

Babars USA

“Do you know what’s happening at the Republican National Convention this week? No that’s not rhetorical. Seriously, do you know what’s happening at the Republican National Convention this week??”



Political conventions are always tricky to cover. They’re even trickier when you don’t know what to expect until a few days out till the convention!


If there is one word to describe the overall vibe of the 2016 Republican National Convention (RNC) it would be “uncertainty.” Between a fervent group of Republicans threatening to block the Trump nomination, and you know… living in some strange parallel universe where Donald Trump is ACTUALLY GOING TO BE THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE (!!!) the RNC this year is quite unpredictable. This makes covering it extremely tricky.


Other than hearing that there’ll be themes on the first two nights of the convention – Monday night is all about Benghazi and Tuesday night is going to focus on the economy I guess… – we don’t know much. What we do know however is that throughout the week we’ll be bringing our take on all the insanity in Cleveland. We already have various articles planned throughout the week along with nightly recaps with our “About Last Night” series.


To make it easier for everyone to find pieces on the RNC, we made a catch-all post under our Features header – appropriately named The Bin – on the right column called Your One Stop Post for All TPT RNC Coverage. Below is the nightly schedule that the GOP released a couple of days ago. Take a look to see if there’s anything that interests you.
