Now this guy has guts - Muslim with an AR-15 strapped to his back in Cleveland outside the convention.
I like that he is using his second amendment rights and not causing any trouble. Bloody brave though.

Let's not turn this into a thread about Benghazi or even Hillary.
Please...

What surprises do you think tonight will bring?
I predict yet another dump trump effort.
Well not much of a prediction given the current climate.
There is a floor vote to name him the nominee and some delegates are planning to call for an individual vote if only to embarrass trump by showing how many do not support him.

Then we don't know what unannounced, unplanned sideshow will pop up.
It's been entertaining if nothing else.


From all the interviews and reports today, it seems like there could be a walkout on Weds.
I have not heard anything today, but who knows. I do believe a minority report can be brought to the floor at any time.

It's a more powerful message than any of the whining and any act of terrorism.

On the convention - Cruz needs signatures from 8 states to get on the ballot AND a minority report (though not sure what grounds he could use now that the rules are done). I suppose there could be a mass walk out, but then there are reserve delegates.

Some helpful information to help with understanding tonight's vote:


The afternoon session will gavel in shortly after 5:30 p.m., with the roll call coming after 6:00 p.m. The convention secretary goes one-by-one through the list of states alphabetically. The chair of each delegation will briefly tout their state before announcing their state's vote total. It should last over an hour. Since nearly all of the delegates are bound, we know that Trump will win a majority of delegates. But anti-Trump backers may still stir up trouble on the floor by trying to go rogue.


1. First, Trump must demonstrate the support of a majority of delegates in eight states in order to be nominated on the floor. A supporter will give a short speech nominating him and at least one supporter will give a short speech to second.

2. The secretary starts a roll call vote of the states, calling out the name of the state and its number of delegates in alphabetical order.

3. States are allowed to pass. The secretary will go back through the names of the states that were skipped at the end.

4. Each state will announce the aggregate vote from their state as the delegates are bound. The secretary (or assistant secretary) will repeat back the tally and record it.

5. This year, the secretary will repeat back and record the votes for all candidates, including those not placed in nomination. This is different than in 2012, when only Romney's votes were repeated back and counted. It's a nod of inclusion.

6. Once every state has voted, the convention chair will announce the tally for each candidate and announce that Trump has garnered the support of a majority of delegates eligible under the call.


States are allowed to skip their turn if they choose. On the first round of the roll call, we expect some anti-Trump states like Colorado may skip their turn. We also expect Trump's home state of New York to pass on the first time through the list, because they want to be the state to put Trump over the 1,237 magic number. The secretary will return to states that skipped at the end.

We expect Trump to approach 1,237 votes around Pennsylvania in the alphabetical, state-by-state vote. At that point, the rest of the states down the alphabet will likely skip their turns. The list will then circle around to the top, going back through the list with the states that skipped.

We expect New York will put Trump over the magic number of 1,237 votes. If any anti-Trump states also skipped on the second time through the roll call, the roll call will begin a third time, naming any state that passed twice.

But tonight they get a microphone and every state has a delegate who will represent that state who will announce the delegate count for their state and they are planning to invoke some rule.

As above, I am not sure which rule they can invoke.
