"The parties are mattering less and less, but this isn't necessarily a reversible process." – Susan Page

For months, Americans have watched the number of presidential hopefuls from major political parties dwindle from 23 to three. Party leaders and their presumptive nominees are now planning their respective debuts at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions to be held in July.

What can we expect out of both the RNC and DNC? With arguably two of the most unpopular presidential candidates in history, what could happen during the general election? Will we see the emergence of a third major political party?

Join us for a conversation with national leaders on the upcoming Republican and Democratic National Conventions and on what is becoming one of the most unconventional presidential elections in American history.

Panelists include:

Jim Gilmore, former Chair, Republican National Committee

Susan Page, Washington Bureau Chief, USA Today

David Wilhelm, former Chair, Democratic National Committee

This conversation will be moderated by John C. Green, Ph.D., Director of the Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics at The University of Akron.
