The Ticket: The Rules and Regulations of a Contested Convention

This week on The Ticket 2016: The Texas Tribune's Jay Root and KUT's Ben Philpott will try to explain what could happen at this summer's Republican National Convention … if none of the candidates have enough delegates to become the nominee. Former Texas GOP Chairman Steve Munisteri joins us to help explain the binding and unbinding of hundreds of delegates. We'll take convention questions from our listeners. And in the return of The Straight Ticket segment, we'll bring you a dramatization of what could happen in Cleveland from the perspective of two delegates.
