A history of the brokered conventions that never happened

in Uncategorized by

Steve Kornacki pulls together a nice history of all the brokered conventions that were predicted but never materialized.

“The last time there was true post-primary season suspense on the GOP side was in 1976, when Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan both emerged from the last wave of contests in early June short of the magic delegate number… That was the last truly unpredictable convention that either party has staged. But at various moments in primary campaigns since then, we’ve heard the kind of deadlocked convention chatter we’re now hearing.”
