House Speaker Paul Ryan and U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson are scheduled to address the Republican National Convention on Day 2 of the four-day show in Cleveland.
Today’s theme is “Make America Work Again” and the narrative that Donald Trump’s campaign will tell is that the candidate is a successful businessman with a record of creating jobs while the Obama administration has delivered job-killing regulations.
Look for Democrats to respond with statements about the thousands of lawsuits filed against Trump, the outsourcing of jobs by Trump’s businesses, labor strikes and also failed ventures.
A look at the speaker lineup, which follows today’s nominating process:
• Sharon Day, co-chair of the Republican National Committee.
