Wisconsin Representation at National Party Conventions

Both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions saw a strong showing of Wisconsin elected officials at their respective conventions. In addition to nominating their presidential candidates, both parties tried to stir excitement and build party unity in an election season highlighted by continued dissonance in both parties.

The Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio was chaired by Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus. Other Wisconsin speakers at the convention in Cleveland included Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, and Gov. Scott Walker.

The Democrats held their convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which wrapped up Tursday. The Democratic convention featured Wisconsin’s U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore and U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin; speakers featured on the fourth day of the convention.
