The convention also heard from House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. He said , unlike the GOP , Democrats have settled on a exhausted nominee for 2016. Both had been slow and somewhat reluctant to endorse Mr Trump, and both declined to give him more than a passing mention in their convention speeches.
Another high-profile speech will be by Trump's former primary rival, Texas Sen. Many Americans will get their first introduction to Pence when he delivers his headline speech. Will the hubbub die down, or will Democrats and others manage to keep it alive? The same thing happened to Alaska, which miraculously got recognized by the chair and demanded a poll of the state delegation-forcing a shamefaced Preibus to take the podium and explain which arcane rule allowed the party to take votes ...
Cruz's name wasn't formally placed in nomination even though he was closest to Trump in the primaries. It would have been better if they gave more direct, personal endorsements.
