Republican National Convention: Recap and Look Ahead

Pete Springer/OPB

All week we have been bringing you live coverage from the Republican National Convention in Tampa. The big speeches by Mitt Romney, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney’s wife Ann, and, of course, Clint Eastwood’s dialogue with an invisible Obama, have grabbed the most media attention. But behind the speeches there were stories of an impending hurricane, an intra-party battle, and slippery facts.

Today we’ll recap and analyze the big stories and themes of the RNC, and look ahead to what to expect from the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC, which is right around the corner.

Here are some of the sights from the final night of the RNC and Mitt Romney’s speech: 

We’ll also talk to the Sunlight Foundation about their efforts to follow the money that’s been flowing from donors and corporations to the GOP all week.

Think Out Loud will be at the DNC as well, so stayed tuned for more convention coverage next week.

What has stood out to you during the convention? Has anything changed what you think about the Romney/Ryan ticket?
