National Conventions

Today is the first day of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. One of the reasons for the convention is to gather members of the Republican Party together to formally nominate Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to represent them in the November Election. The Democratic Party will hold their convention September 3-6 in Charlotte, North Carolina and re-nominate Barack Obama and Joe Biden to represent them. Watching even a few minutes of the conventions is a very good way to see democracy in action!
