2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio
Photographer: Mike Lynaugh - July 18-21, 2016
Here are my photos from an incredible week in Cleveland. I have been very fortunate over my career to get to record some very historic moments in politics. I've photographed campaign events, events at the White House, Inaugurations, been to an Inaugural Ball, I was there when President Bush officially won reelection, State of the Unions, but the one thing I had never covered was a Presidential Convention. When I heard that the RNC was going to hold their convention in Cleveland (45 minutes from our home), I knew I had to apply. I owe some thank yous to some people for helping me finally make the decision to take the time off from work, but I am very proud to say I have finally checked a convention off my bucket list.
