Here’s Who’s Speaking At The RNC Beginning Monday
Last week the Democrats held their convention for four days, this week it will be the Republicans. Officially, the Republican National Convention is being held in Charlotte, North Carolina, but just like we saw last week, speakers will be located throughout the nation.
Republican delegates began arriving over the weekend in Charlotte for Monday as a smaller than normal group of delegates will renominate the President and Vice President. That part won't be televised.
What will be televised from 7:30-10 pm. CT each night are speakers from across the nation. President Trump will address the convention each of the four nights although his major speech will be on Thursday night.
Network channels such as ABC, NBC, and CBS will carry the final hour of each night while cable channels and CSPAN will cover 2 1/2 hours.
