GCP Annual Meeting rewind:“A brokered convention” prediction


With the 2016 Republican National Convention starting three months from today (it runs from July 18-21), it’s interesting to recall remarks made by the Greater Cleveland Partnership’s 2015 Annual Meeting keynote speaker Chuck Todd, host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” that this could be a “brokered convention.”

Speaking to an audience of more than 1200 business leaders last June, Todd observed it’s “inevitable” that after the primaries are over, “no Republican candidate will have a majority of delegates necessary” to win the nomination.

It could be “an unscripted” convention, he said. “That’s pretty exciting for those of us in the media.”
