Encyclopedia > Republican National Convention

The Republican National Convention, held every four years, is the presidential nominating convention of the Republican Party of the United States. Convened by the Republican National Committee, the stated purpose of the convocation is to nominate an official candidate in the upcoming U.S. presidential election, and to adopt the party platform and rules for the election cycle. Speeches by important party figures are key features of the convention; here, former President Jimmy Carter addresses the 2004 Democratic National Convention. ... The Republican Party is one of two major contemporary political parties in the United States of America, along with the Democratic Party. ... The Republican National Committee (RNC) provides national leadership for the Republican Party of the United States. ... United States presidential elections determine who serves as President and Vice President of the United States for four-year terms, starting on Inauguration Day (January 20th of the year after the election). ... A party platform, also known as an manifesto is a list of the principles which a political party supports in order to appeal to the general public for the purpose of having said partys candidates voted into office. ...


Like the Democratic National Convention, it signifies the end of the presidential primary season and the start of campaigning for the general election. In recent years, the nominee has been known well before the convention, leading many to oppose the convention as a mere public relations event and coronation. Featured at the Democratic National Convention are speeches by prominent party figures. ... The series of U.S. presidential primaries is one of the first steps in the process of electing a President of the United States. ... A general election is an election in which all or most members of a given political body are up for election. ...

Historically, the convention was the final determinant of the nomination, and often contentious as various factions of party insiders maneuvered to advance their candidates. Since the almost universal adoption of the primary election for selecting delegates in the last quarter of the 20th century, however, the convention's significance has diminished. The national party focuses on the convention as a unity point to bring together a party platform and state parties. A primary election is an election in which voters in a jurisdiction select candidates for a subsequent election (nominating primary). ...

Delegations

The size of delegations to the Republican National Convention are determined by the national rules of the party, which as of 2004 indicate the following:

  1. Ten delegates at large from each of the fifty states.
  2. The national committeeman, the national committeewoman and the chairman of the state Republican Party of, each state and American Samoa, the District of Columbia, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
  3. Three district delegates for each member of the United States House of Representatives from each state, six from DC, and between six and twenty delegates from each of the territories.
  4. From each state having cast at least a majority of its Electoral College votes for the Republican nominee in the preceding presidential election: four and one-half delegates at large plus a number of the delegates at large equal to 60 percent of the number of electoral votes of that state, rounding any fraction upwards
  5. one additional delegate at large to each state
    1. which elected a Republican governor since the preceding presidential election
    2. whose Republican members of the United States House of Representatives represent a majority of that state's representatives
    3. where Republicans control any chamber of the state legislature
    4. where Republicans control all chambers of the state legislature
  6. one additional delegate to each state per Republican it elected to the United States Senate in the six-year period prior to January 1 of the year in which the next national convention is held.

The composition of the individual state and territory delegations is determined by the bylaws of their respective state and territory parties. Since 1972, almost all have appointed delegates by primary election results, although some, notably Iowa, use caucuses, and others combine the primary with caucuses or with delegates elected at a state convention. ...

A caucus is most generally defined as being a meeting of supporters or members of a political party or movement. ...


In the past, competing factions of a state party sometimes drew up separate lists of delegates, each claiming to be the official one. One of the first agenda items at a convention is therefore credentialing, whereby the Credentials Committee determines which group is recognized as the official delegation.
