Republican Convention Protesters
The Republican National Convention opened with a floor fight when The Never Trump crowd tried to overthrow the presumptive nominee. They claimed to have gathered enough signatures to change the rules requiring delegates bound to Trump to vote for him. But the signatures never saw the light of day. The protesters lost on a voice vote. Chaos ensued.
Trump went on to win the nomination last night with 1,725 delegates. He only needed 1,237.
Still, the mission of convention Republicans seems to be to be to sell The Donald – to other Republicans.
I’ve been spending some time at the RNC in Cleveland. My mission is to produce a daily sketchbook for the Akron Beacon Journal and the Tampa Bay Times. I’ll post some of the sketches on Bokbluster along with my regular cartoons.
