2023 Summer RNC Meetings and Presidential Debate Update

During the week of August 21st, the RNC held its summer meetings in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the site where in less than ten months’ time we will once again gather for the 2024 GOP Presidential Convention.

The highlight of this set of meetings was Wednesday’s GOP Presidential Debate featuring 8 candidates who had to qualify before they could appear. The debate proved lively and focused on many issues important to conservatives. Because this debate was coordinated and run by the RNC, it was balanced and fair in the types of questions and the issues that were addressed.
