Get Ready for the Republican National Convention – Schedule of Speakers!

Who's funding the virtual Republican National Convention? - The ...

Dear Commons Community,

The Republican National Convention (RNC) will begin tonight and last through Thursday, August 27th. The convention was originally planned for the week of July 13th, but was delayed due to the pandemic.  

Tonight delegates will actually cast their votes for Donald Trump in Charlotte. The following three days will feature a variety of events and speeches. Melania Trump will speak on Tuesday, Mike Pence on Wednesday and Donald Trump on Thursday ― when he will accept the nomination from the White House. Trump also made the last-minute decision to speak at the end of every night of the convention.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News that the convention will have live programming every night, with keynote speakers and “surprises.” McDaniel told the network’s Bill Hemmer that live events will run throughout the day while prime-time events will occur from 8:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET.

Viewers can find the programming on the RNC’s livestream, on social media platforms, and on several cable news networks and news websites.
