* Donald Trump officially accepted the Republican Party's presidential nomination Thursday night, capping off a raucous convention in Cleveland. The next challenge for his campaign: uniting the Republican Party and appealing to the broader electorate to defeat Hillary Clinton in November. The billionaire businessman is the first major presidential nominee since 1940 who is neither a current or former officeholder nor a military leader.
* Meanwhile the Democratic nominee-to-be is expected to announce her choice for vice president before her party's convention next week in Philadelphia.
Gwen Ifill is in Philadelphia ahead of the Democratic National Convention to get analysis on the 2016 race for the White House from: Jeanne Cummings of The Wall Street Journal, Michael Duffy of Time, John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times, and Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics.

* A series of shootings this week is once again raising issues of policing and race in America. On Thursday night, 5 police officers were killed and 7 others wounded in a sniper attack in Dallas during a protest following 2 police shootings of black men in Minnesota and Louisiana earlier this week. Dallas Police Chief David Brown said one suspect, who was killed after an hours-long standoff with police, "wanted to kill white people, especially white officers" after the recent shootings. President Obama said there is "no possible justification" for the killing of police officers. Just a day earlier he said the uptick in shootings of black men by police should concerns all Americans not just black Americans.
* Meanwhile, the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server continues. FBI Director James Comey was grilled by the House Oversight Committee just days after recommending to the Justice Department that no charges be filed. The State Department has reopened its investigation, and House Speaker Paul Ryan has asked the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to deny the presumptive Democratic nominee access to any classified information for the rest of the 2016 campaign.
* With just 10 days until the start of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Donald Trump traveled to Capitol Hill to meet with GOP lawmakers to reassure them that his goals are in line with the party's agenda. According to media accounts, the meeting between the presidential hopeful and GOP senators became heated at the times. There is a growing concern among some rank-and-file Republicans that the billionaire's undisciplined campaign style could hurt GOP members facing reelection in November.
Gwen Ifill will have the latest on the 3 police-involved shootings this week plus analysis of the 2016 Race for the White House with: Carrie Johnson of NPR, Manu Raju of CNN, Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post, and Beth Reinhard of The Wall Street Journal.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton gear up for their party's conventions as talk about potential running mates escalates. Trump seeks a VP with the Washington experience he lacks as he continues the struggle to unite the Republican party. Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren joins Clinton on the campaign trail. Will Warren attract progressive Democratic voters to Hillary? Mistrust still surrounds the former secretary of State as the investigation into her personal email account carries on. And heading into the July 4 weekend, global security forces are on high alert after a well-planned terror attack at the Istanbul airport left hundreds dead or wounded. Plus, the Supreme Court - still operating with just eight justices - issues its most decisive decision on abortion in 25 years.
