Police officers stand guard following Thursday's sniper shooting in Dallas.

NPR Politics presents the Lunchbox List: our favorite campaign news and stories curated from NPR and around the Web in digestible bites (100 words or less!). Look for it every weekday afternoon from now until the conventions.

Convention Countdown

The Republican National Convention is in 9 days in Cleveland.

The Democratic National Convention is in 16 days in Philadelphia.

Did you know? Despite months of negotiations, Uber told Politico that no partnership was ever reached between the RNC and ride-sharing app. The partnership would have, like Uber has planned for the DNC in Philadelphia, let Uber shuttle delegates and party officials around Cleveland via a special version of the app, calling on a fleet exclusive to conventiongoers.
