GOP may move 2016 convention up to June

by - August 15, 2013

Republicans, don't book your 2016 vacation yet: You may be going to a convention in June. There is "almost unanimity'' among party officials to move the nominating convention to a date earlier in the summer, to shorten the primary period and to allow nominees earlier access to general election funds, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said Thursday at a party meeting in Boston. Last year's GOP convention began Aug. 27, and the Democratic convention began after Labor Day. The date change will be confirmed "officially'' sometime in the next year, Priebus said, but "I don't get any resistance'' on moving the convention to June or July.
