Republican National Convention: Night 1
While this week's Republican National Convention will be different from previous conventions in that some of its speakers will not be on-site in Charlotte, North Carolina. However, when compared to last week's Democratic National Convention (see previous blog posts), this convention is much more conventional. In fact, convention proceedings have already begun this morning in North Carolina and will stretch into the night, with key speakers given primetime slots.
Who is speaking tonight at the convention which will nominate President Donald Trump for re-election? *TIMES TBA
Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC)
House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (LA)
Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL)
Rep. Jim Jordan (OH)
Former Ambassador Nikki Haley
Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel
Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones
Amy Johnson Ford
Mark and Patricia McCloskey
Donald Trump Jr.
President Donald J. Trump, who will speak every night at the convention to his supporters.
