(NewsReady.com) – The Republican Party has officially nominated its candidates for November’s presidential election – and, to nobody’s surprise, they’ve gone with the same winning team that scooped the White House in 2016. President Donald Trump will be running for a second term and Mike Pence will, once again, be his running mate.
The Republican National Convention is off to a raucous start following the delegates' roll call and nomination of President Trump.https://t.co/ex6auizsCd

While the president has faced some opposition from within the party, his support has been overwhelming in general. The Democrats are making a lot of fuss over the roughly two-dozen former GOP legislators who’re running a “Republicans for Biden” campaign.
Overall, the Monday, August 24 RNC vote was a formality, with Trump taking every delegate except a single Iowa one, which went to Bill Weld.
The near-total unanimity behind President Trump is a sharp contrast to the bitterly-fought Democrat campaign. For all of its sound and fury, the campaign still ended up delivering a tired candidate who first failed to take the White House over 30 years ago. On the other hand, the Trump-Pence ticket is much more encouraging.
