Day four of the Republican National Convention "Make America One Again"
07/21/2016 07:30 PM
CLEVELAND — Kentucky state Sen. Ralph Alvarado, R-Winchester, commanded the stage on night three of the Republican National Convention.
The Kentucky delegation was impressed and proud to have him representing the commonwealth on a national stage.
Mike Duncan, the national Republican Party chair for Kentucky, believes this election is going to be about international and personal security. He also says he believes that Donald Trump is the candidate that voters want protecting them.
Alvarado wasn’t the only one to take the stage last night. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and former rival of Donald Trump stole the show last night when he did not endorse the now official GOP nominee. RPK Chair Mac Brown believes that this snub will be the death of Cruz’s political career.
There are a lot of people working behind the scenes of the convention and one of them is a Kentuckian. Bernie Sommer is the lone Kentucky page in Cleveland. She explained to Pure Politics what the job entails and the unique opportunities it presents.
