GOP Convention Highlights, Day 3

Make America First Again

Vice presidential nominee Mike Pence: “At the very moment when America is crying out for something new and different, the other party has answered with a stale agenda and the most predictable of names. … The choice could not be more clear. Americans can elect someone who literally personifies the failed establishment in Washington, DC, or we can choose a leader who will fight every day to Make America Great Again. … In the end, this election just comes down to just two names on the ballot, so let’s resolve right now that Hillary Clinton will never become president of the United States of America.”

Ted Cruz: “I congratulate Donald Trump on winning the nomination. … We deserve leaders who stand for principle, unite us all behind shared values, cast aside anger for love. That is the standard we should expect from everybody. … Please, don’t stay home in November. … Stand and speak and vote your conscience. Vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.” (Editor’s Note: To great protest from the convention floor, Cruz did not stand by his commitment to endorse the nominee. In a Republican debate in the same Cleveland arena four months ago, when asked if he would endorse the eventual nominee, Cruz responded, “Yes, because I gave my word I would.”)

Marco Rubio: “The time for fighting each other is over. It’s time to come together.”

Scott Walker: “Last August, I said that any of the Republicans running would be better than Hillary Clinton. I meant it then, and I mean it now. … President Reagan appointed Justice Scalia to the Supreme Court 30 years ago. … We cannot concede the Supreme Court to Hillary Clinton for 30 years. The consequences are too great. … [Hillary Clinton’s private email server] isn’t just another Clinton scandal. Hillary’s scandal put our national security at risk and that makes her unfit to be president of the United States.”

Newt Gingrich: “There have been many fascinating things to watch about the extraordinary, historic rise of Donald Trump. But the most significant has been Donald Trump’s courage to tell some important truths about our national security. For example: We are at war. We are at war with radical Islamists. They are determined to kill us. They are stronger than we admit and are greater in number than we admit. And there is no substitute for victory. In contrast to Donald Trump, our national security and foreign policy elites, led by Hillary Clinton, are incapable of speaking with such honesty. While they lie about the threat, we need to tell the truth about the danger.”

Laura Ingraham: “Today, we have stagnating wages, skyrocketing health care costs, doubling of the debt, the threat of ISIS and the rise of China, and the Democrats’ answer to all that is to nominate the woman who helped orchestrate America’s decline. … Donald Trump respects us enough to tell us the truth about what has happened to our country. On things like immigration, trade, our status in the world. Even in the face of unfair criticism and sheer hatred.”
