Levin: How Lincoln Won a Brokered Convention

We’ve done this before, we’ll be alright.

On Wednesday’s radio program, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin gave a history lesson on the 1860 brokered Republican convention, in which Abraham Lincoln eventually emerged as the Republican nominee.

If you look at the media, Levin said, you would see them acting as if a brokered convention had never happened before. But that’s not true.


Levin’s point, in regaling his audience with this story, was to show that we’ve been through this process before. We’ve had a brokered convention before. And the party not only survived, but we nominated and elected one of the greatest American presidents in our nation’s history.
