CLEVELAND, OH – The first day of the Republican National Convention is underway in Cleveland, and thus far it’s been filled with drama.

Shouting and loud cries of protest broke out on the convention floor as a group of anti-Trump delegates submitted signatures to try to disrupt the convention. Ultimately, they were unsuccessful.

The speakers are expected to begin around 7:50 p.m. with Melania Trump headlining the first day.
