hosted by Ben Philpott & Jay Root

Each week KUT's Ben Philpott and the Tribune's Jay Root provide a rundown
of the week's campaign actions and bring you interviews with people who
make a living working on, covering or commenting on the campaigns.

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, we’ll bring you a dramatization of what could happen in Cleveland from the prospective of two delegates.
