Baxter will return well in time to help set the stage for the conventions at which Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are expected to be named their party candidates. It’s been a long time coming.

Clinton announced her candidacy April 12, 2015. Trump announced his candidacy June 16, 2015.

The Republican National Convention, in Cleveland, is slated from July 18 to July 21.

The Democratic National Convention, in Philadelphia, is slated from July 25 to July 28.

While Baxter’s away, enjoy his previous columns.
