WATCH LIVE: 'Make America Work Again' speeches begin at RNC

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The 2016 Republican National Convention continues today in Cleveland with a theme of "Make America Work Again."

Perhaps capturing the most attention from political insiders will be House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Endangered Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, one of the few Republicans facing tough re-election match-ups to embrace Trump, will speak, as will New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie -- who just lost out in the vice presidential sweepstakes.

Two of Trump's children are also on the calendar to speak Tuesday night. Tiffany Trump and Donald Trump Jr. are among the headliners.

Trump is also bringing his own employees onto the stage. Kerry Woolard, the general manager of Trump Winery, will discuss her work alongside the presumptive Republican nominee in a prime-time speaking slot.

The night will also feature a broad range of non-political speakers -- including UFC president Dana White, golfer Natalie Gulbis and actress Kimberlin Brown.

Here's a list of who is speaking at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday.


  • Sharon Day, Co-Chair of the Republican National Committe3
