The Republican National Convention begins its second day Tuesday with the nomination of Donald Trump as president and the evening’s speakers focused on the economy.
Speaking on the theme of “Make America Work Again” will be two of Trump’s children, Republican leaders from the House of Representatives and the Senate and two of Trump’s former presidential rivals.
The protest crowds were smaller than expected on the first day of the convention, but they are expected to grow with each day as more people and organizations make their way to Cleveland. Only one woman was arrested Monday on charges involving an outstanding warrant.
At the 5:30 p.m. session, a roll call vote for Trump is planned. Will there be any theatrics like the raucous floor battle Monday?
Never miss a local story.
