This time last year, the people of Cleveland, Ohio probably guessed 2016 could be a big year for their city. But even the city’s most bullish sports fans and political junkies might not have guessed their long-suffering Cleveland Cavaliers would win an NBA championship just weeks before the quadrennial Republican National Convention brought the country into the Cavaliers’ arena for a week of right-wing hullabaloo. Heck, even the Cleveland Indians, who haven’t won the World Series since 1948, are in first place with the best record in the American League.
We don’t have broadcast rights to Indians games at macleans.ca, but we will show you the Republicans’ own livestream for the duration of the party convention. We’ll also be writing from the arena floor. Our correspondent, Allen Abel, wrote about the gathering’s opening day. Scott Feschuk is taking photos—with commentary, of course—from the convention floor. You can find the rest of our coverage of the U.S. election, including Anne Kingston’s latest feature on Hillary Clinton, right here.
