Pritzker Fellow Jeff Larson on "The Quadruply - Indicted Former President & His Unique Approach to Conventions"


(Current UChicago Students Only)


Thursday, October 19

12:30-1:45 PM


Even in 2016, Donald J. Trump shook up the traditions of GOP conventions. He was rebuffed in some respects - like his request to have the boxing promoter Don King speak instead of traditional politicians - yet he changed the rules of the game; indeed in 2020 there were no rules at all. If Trump is the nominee again, what could that mean for the Republican convention next year, given his legal troubles and usual profile. If he ends up being otherwise engaged, where do his delegates go? What might a different nominee keep or return to the process? Additionally, we will have had at least two debates by this point, a good spark for a discussion on the other GOP candidate’s strengths and where they may be looking for the delegate during the selection process.

Special Guest: Matt Rhoades, Co-CEO of CGCN Group, Campaign Manager for Mitt Romney’s 2012 Presidential Campaign
