DENVER — Today is the day Republican nominee for president Donald Trump will deliver his big speech in front of the Colorado delegation and the rest of the convention crowd and nation. Yep, the old convention nomination acceptance speech, every presidential candidate's biggest chance to set the tone for the rest of the election. Coincidently, today is also Get to Know Your Customer Day ... and Invite an Alien to Live with you Day. So, happy .... those, uh, interesting .... things!
Some of the Colorado delegation was impressed by Indiana Gov. and vice presidential running mate Mike Pence's speech last night, but they seemed more impressed with Ted Cruz's recalcitrant speech. While today is indeed Donald Trump's chance to give himself a solid launch into General Election season, last night Ted Cruz launched his own Senate re-election campaign — at least that's what you would think from his fundraising email sent just after his defiant prime-time address in front of the nation ... even though he's not up for re-election until 2018. Hey it's never to early, right? (Read to the end for a classic quote from a top Republican political operative on Cruz and RMGO).
