Day 2 of GOP Convention: Trump Confirmed

It’s official. On Tuesday, Donald Trump became the confirmed Republican nominee for president.

Speaker Paul Ryan – who refused to endorse Trump for a a very long time – formally declared Trump and VP-candidate Mike Pence to be the Republican standard-bearer.

Trump’s kids loved it.

Later that night, former presidential hopeful Chris Christie went on a tirade against Hillary Clinton. Far from making policy arguments, Republicans this year want to win by sending the other side to prison.

Gov. Christie Endorses Trump

New Jersey Governor and ex-presidential candidate Chris Christie endorsed Donald Trump today. The move was met with widespread surprise by political analytics – after all Christie was a clear establishment candidate before he suspended his campaign.

Christie’s endorsement is a blow against Marco Rubio, who received 20 high level endorsements this week alone, but none as prolific as Christie.
