Republican National Convention

Die Republican National Convention (RNC) ist eine alle vier Jahre stattfindende Versammlung, um den Kandidaten der Republikanischen Partei für die Wahl zum US-Präsidenten zu nominieren und das Parteiprogramm festzulegen. Die erste Republican National Convention fand 1854 in Jackson, Michigan statt. Die Republican National Convention 2008 fand in den Twin cities, Minnesota statt.

Das Äquivalent der Demokratischen Partei ist die Democratic National Convention. Diese Versammlungen entsprechen in ihrer Aufgabe dem Bundesparteitag der deutschen Parteien, sind allerdings deutlich medienwirksamer inszeniert und erhalten daher mehr Aufmerksamkeit. Die Versammlungen enden traditionsgemäß mit der Rede des Präsidentschaftskandidaten und dem baloon drop, einem Luftballon- und Konfettifeuerwerk, das auf die Versammlungsbesucher niederregnet.
