2016 Republican National Convention

Editor's note: The Republican National Convention's evening program has resumed in Cleveland. We expect to hear from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Melania Trump, who will likely be introduced by the presumptive nominee. Tonight's theme is "Make America Safe Again." Earlier today, some delegates attempted to force a roll call vote on convention rules, but the effort failed and caused chaos on the floor. - Stephanie
