The Republican Party and Democratic Party will each have a respective convention where their candidates will be officially nominated. The Republican convention will, of course, carry more meaning since the 2012 Republican nominee will be officially named. The 2012 Democratic convention will be more of a pep rally for President Obama who will essentially be rallying his base.
