“WE’RE NOT RESTING UNTIL ELECTION DAY”
by Sharon Rondeau
As of 2:31 p.m. EDT, a number of speakers have addressed the convention including an Arizona state senator, a member of the Rules Committee, and a young female Republican leader who stated that millennials reject a “one-size-fits-all” approach to politics and governance.
“Four years ago, millennials lost the election for us,” she said early in her remarks.
The founder of a free-market organization then spoke, citing diversity within the Republican Party and a growing number of young governors. “We are the party of youth and diversity,” he said.
Speakers at this time are generally taking approximately two minutes each.
A full list of speakers over the four-day convention is here and includes former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, and at least two of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s children.
Milwaukee County, WI Sheriff David Clarke will also be speaking.
The president of the National Federation of Republican Women is speaking at 2:40 p.m., stating that her organization is “committed to putting a Republican in the White House” in 2016. “We’re not resting until Election Day,” she said.
