Republican National Convention: Series of presidential nominating conventions of the United States Republican Party
The Republican National Convention (RNC) is a series of presidential nominating conventions held every four years since 1856 by the United States Republican Party. They are administered by the Republican National Committee. The primary goal of the Republican National Convention is to nominate and confirm a candidate for president and vice president, adopt a comprehensive party platform and unify the party. Delegates from all fifty U.S. states and from American dependencies and territories such as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands attend the convention and cast their votes to choose the Party's presidential candidate. Like the Democratic National Convention, the Republican National Convention marks the formal end of the primary election period and the start of the general election season.
