With less than four months to go until Election Day, Nov. 3 is starting to get “awfully big in the window,” to paraphrase Tom Hanks in the movie “Apollo 13.”
Next month Republicans and Democrats will hold their national conventions to formally nominate their candidates for president and to conduct party business. Although this year’s conventions will look much different than usual on account of the COVID-19 pandemic, essential party functions will still take place. One noteworthy difference this year will be the party platforms. Because Gov.
