One comment on “Rabyd Opinion – A Brokered GOP Convention – The Serpent at the Edge of the Map (Week of Opinion – Part 3)

  1. I love history, and enjoyed reading your article. I like noting in conversation that Abraham Lincoln, easily regarded as one of our greatest Presidents, came to the Republican Party convention of 1860 as a second-place candidate. William Seward was the front-runner and was widely expected to become the nominee. The party officials and power brokers decided there were problems with Seward’s electability, and Lincoln didn’t win the nomination until the third ballot.
