CLEVELAND, Ohio — The national Republican Party has launched a new website for the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
The site, convention.gop, for now is a bit sparse. It includes a sign-up sheet for people who are interested in volunteering for the convention, some official announcements about appointments to the Committee on Arrangements, which is the GOP’s convention-organizing arm, and a really nice photo of Cleveland’s skyline, among other information.
It also shows a photo of Committee on Arrangements staff working in the committee’s Playhouse Square headquarters.
But the site will receive a “robust overhaul in the near future” and eventually will feature videos, news and other information, according to Republican officials. The party also says the “.GOP” suffix is the only top-level web domain that is associated with a political party.
The website accompanies a separate site run by the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee, the local, non-partisan non-profit that’s helping the GOP organize the convention.
“Convention.GOP is a one stop shop for all information related to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland,” COA Chairman Steve King said in a written statement. “The site will be a resource for delegates and attendees, the media, and individuals across the country who are interested in learning more about the Convention process. We will also feature updates on the program participants, events and activities planned for attendees, while creating a front-row experience for those unable to attend in person.”
