This event has passed.

Now that the presidential nomination contests have begun, what do we really know about how the major party nominees are selected? What is the delegate math for victory in 2016? What is the difference between a delegate and a superdelegate? How do the states run their primaries and award delegates? How do these contests factor into securing the nomination at the national conventions?

BPC hosted an expert panel to weigh in on the maneuvering and strategies that make up the primary race and set the stage for the national conventions.
