Trump Accepts Nomination at RNC/DNC to Begin 22 Jul 16

CLEVELAND (AP) — In the swirl of balloons and cheers of the masses, Donald Trump finally had his Rocky Balboa moment after a rocky convention.

Trump’s forceful promises to be the champion of disaffected Americans closed out his convention on a high note for the party. That was not a moment too soon after shows of disharmony and assorted flubs before the closer Thursday night.

Now Democrats are eager to step up for their own spectacle. Hillary Clinton is set to snatch attention from Republicans by naming her running mate in advance of the Democratic convention, with Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine the leading contender.

The Democratic convention starts Monday in Philadelphia.
