Description
The 12th Republican National Convention assembled in the Exposition Building just south of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. This Neo-Classical Style building, constructed in 1898 and demolished in 2005, served as Philadelphia's convention hall for thirty years. Each state was allowed two delegates per electoral vote; territories were allowed 2 to 6 delegates depending upon their population.

The 1900 Republican National Convention was as uneventful as 21st century nominating conventions. Three credentials cases were easily dispensed with; there were no challenges to the platform; and an effort to reduce the delegations from Southern states was withdrawn before coming to a vote.

President McKinley was placed in nomination by Sen. Foraker of Ohio and nominated in the quickest roll call in convention history up to that time. Theodore Roosevelt gave McKinley's seconding speech.

VP Hobart having died during his term, the convention needed to select a new nominee. Jonathan Dolliver (IA) placed TR in nomination for VP, and Sen. Chauncey Depew (NY), that state's greatest orator of the day, gave a rousing seconding speech which clinched the deal. Roosevelt was nominated for VP on the first ballot by a margin of 925-1. TR, a delegate from NY, abstained in the voting.
