Republican Convention Starts Monday

18 July 2016   Lynne LaMaster
The Republican National Convention starts Monday at 1 PM in Cleveland, Ohio and three representatives from the Prescott area will be there. 

The Republican National Convention (RNC) is set to start at 1 PM in Cleveland, Ohio, hosting, “...approximately 2,470 delegates and 2,302 alternate delegates from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and five territories, according to the RNC 2016 convention website. Add to that 15,000 credentialed media, second only to the Olympic Games in Rio, and you've got the makings of a rather large event.

Arizona will be sending 28 delegates and 28 alternates to the National Convention. Patt Parker, President of the Yavapai County Republican Women organization, will also be attending the National Convention, along with her husband, Jeff Parker. She sat down to discuss the YCRW and the Convention: 

This year, the RNC will have a different look and feel from past conventions. Yes, politicians will be speaking, but so will others. In fact, it is promised to be a downright unconventional convention. 

"Veterans, political outsiders, faith leaders and presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump’s family members will lead an unconventional lineup of speakers who have real-world experience and will make a serious case against the status quo and for an agenda that will make America great again."
