CLEVELAND, OH- The first day of the Republican National Convention is off to a tense start.
Before the Rules Committee Chair ignored the petition for a roll call, the chair of the Credentials Committee took the stage to scold the delegates for their delegate selection process.
Colorado, one of the states that had asked for a roll call vote and was denied, apparently didn’t take too kindly to the denial or the subsequent criticism. They left the floor and it is unclear if they will return. As they were leaving the floor, another state’s delegation (I could not tell which) yelled “WE WANT TRUMP! WE WANT TRUMP!” right in their faces as they left.
