GOP Will Hold Convention Early

Politico: "Republicans will hold their 2016 national convention more than a month earlier than their 2012 event for one simple reason: money."

"Two years ago, Mitt Romney raised $1 billion but found himself out of cash that August due to campaign finance laws that essentially force candidates to divide their spending between pre-and-post convention accounts. Moving the convention up, the GOP reasons, will help make those rules a non-issue."
