Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, once among Donald Trump’s rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, was on the convention floor in Cleveland on Tuesday night to announce the votes of the Wisconsin delegation.
“The birthplace of the Republican Party, the home of the 13-time world champion Green Bay Packers and the home of the greatest motorcycles in the world, Harley Davidson, casts 36 votes for Ted Cruz and six votes for the next president of the United States, Donald J. Trump,” Walker said.
Walker is also scheduled to speak at the convention on Thursday night.
Trump is no longer “presumptive.” Republican National Convention chair Paul Ryan brought his party’s presidentional nomination process to a close – tripping up on the candidate’s name in the process.
“The chair announces that Donald Day Trump, having recieved a majority of these votes entitled to be cast at the convention, has been selected as the Republican Party nominee for President of the United States.”
