Highlights from Thursday’s National Journal Event

Aug. 30, 2012, 10:32 a.m.

Na­tion­al Journ­al wrapped up its live-stream­ing events at the Re­pub­lic­an Na­tion­al Con­ven­tion on Thursday with what Na­tion­al Journ­al Ed­it­or­i­al Dir­ect­or Ron Brown­stein called the “Cam­paign Man­agers’ Sum­mit.”

Four top cam­paign man­agers and strategists gave some tips for Re­pub­lic­an pres­id­en­tial nom­in­ee Mitt Rom­ney’s ac­cept­ance speech on Thursday night and dis­cussed how he and vice pres­id­en­tial pick Paul Ry­an must define their cam­paign mov­ing for­ward. 

The pan­el also de­bated wheth­er this was the last con­ven­tion of its kind. With in­creas­ing costs and de­creas­ing poll bumps, con­ven­tions are likely to be shortened in com­ing cycles, the pan­el con­cluded.

Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s events con­tin­ue on Sept. 3 at the Demo­crat­ic Na­tion­al Con­ven­tion in Char­lotte.
