    GOP launches contested convention website to explain the rules

    GOP launches contested convention website

    Trump Preparing for Delegate Fight
    Inform

    The Republican Party on Thursday is unveiling a website to educate the media and the public on the rules of contested presidential nominating convention.

    The move is the latest concession by GOP officials that the party is close to holding its first contested convention since 1976, when Ronald Reagan challenged President Gerald Ford. Since then, the quadrennial convention has functioned as a made-for-television pep rally to promote the presumptive Republican nominee.


    "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," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement provided to the Washington Examiner.

    "Conventions are democracy in action and our Party's gathering in Cleveland will be an exciting, transparent, and fair process."


    This year, the Cleveland convention could turn into a floor battle for GOP delegates between front-runner Donald Trump, the New York billionaire; Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas; Gov. John Kasich of Ohio, and possibly a dark horse candidate.

    Unfamiliarity with the process has led to wild speculation about the rules governing the process and rumors that party leaders might work to "steal" the nomination from Republican primary voters.


    Priebus has spent considerable time trying to explain that any contested convention would run according to long-established rules. This new website is another part of that effort.

    Winning the nomination requires winning the vote 1,237 delegates in a vote on the convention floor. Most delegates are bound on the first ballot to the candidate that won the primary in their home state, after which they become free agents.


    The Republican Party has met every four years since 1856 to nominate a presidential candidate. Although the modern nomination process has been dominated by voters participating in primaries and caucuses in the states and U.S. territories, candidates are still officially nominated by delegates to the national convention that are elected at the state and local level.

    Your Guide to the Republican National Convention

    On July 18, 2016, delegates will gather in Cleveland, Ohio for the Republican National Convention. Who are the delegates, what are the rules, and how does it all work? You will find all those answers and more here.

    WHAT HAPPENS AT CONVENTION
    Every four years, the Republican Party has a Convention to determine the Party Platform, vote on the rules to govern the Party, and to nominate candidates for President and Vice President.



    THE DELEGATES
    Delegates are selected and empowered at the grassroots level by their peers to represent their state or territory at the Convention. There are 2,472 delegates.



    BECOMING THE NOMINEE
    A candidate must win the votes of a majority of delegates to secure the nomination. In 2016, the magic number is 1,237 (50% + 1 of the 2,472 Convention delegates). Most delegates will go to Convention “bound” to vote for a particular candidate, based on how their state or territory voted.



    THE RULES
    The rules of the Convention are unique to each Convention and voted upon by the delegates.



    THE RNC’S ROLE
    The RNC plays a purely administrative role at Convention, ensuring that the rules and processes are carried out in a transparent manner.
