The current chairman of the Republican National Committee is Reince Priebus, a long-time Wisconsin political activist in the Republican Party who was first elected chairman in 2011 and was subsequently reelected in 2013.  The current chairperson of the Democratic National Committee is Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz from Florida’s 23rd District around the city of Miami.  Wasserman Schultz was handpicked for the position by President Barak Obama in 2011.  Wasserman Schultz, then, is serving in two positions at once, one as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, and the other as official chair of the Democratic Party. 

The 2016 Republican National Convention, during which the Republican Party will formally designate its candidate for the presidency of the United States, will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, with the precise date yet to be determined. According to Priebus, the convention will be held either from June 27-30, or from July 18-21, 2016.
