2016 RNC announces delegation seating arrangement


CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Just like school, even the Republican National Convention has a seating chart.

Saturday, The Committee on Arrangements announced the locations of each delegation on the convention floor.

The set-up is right on top of the basketball court inside Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. It’s assigned by states and territory.

The podium is in the front, and to the right of it is Pennsylvania, Ohio then New Mexico. These will be the seats where the 56 delegates will sit during the convention.

They’ll be busy adopting rules and a platform, and listening to speeches from prominent Republicans on the values of the party.

On Thursday, the delegates will cast their vote to nominate Donald Trump and Governor Mike Pence as the Republican candidates for president and vice president.

“Conventions are a time that bring our party together in one space to reaffirm what we believe in and look to what the future will bring,” said Convention CEO Jeff Larson. “Regardless of our home state and background, we come together as one body to select our nominee for president of the United States.”
