On Sunday I’m flying to Cleveland for the 2016 Republican Convention. I will be sharing with you the news and back door goings on as Donald Trump goes from presumptive to official GOP nominee.

On Thursday morning, the RNC released a partial list of who will be speaking at the 2016 Republican Convention. The list is  both impressive an eclectic and includes military veterans, political insiders and outsiders, faith leaders, and trump family members.

Some of the unconventional speakers include; Mark Geist and John Tiegan who are on the list are survivors of the Benghazi attack, Billionaire Silicon Valley entrepreneur Peter Thiel is the co-founder of Pay-Pal and the man who funded the Hulk Hogan suit against Gawker, and real estate investor Tom Barrack and Las Vegas casino owner Phil Ruffin will represent the tech and business communities. And Pam Bondi, the Florida Attorney General who recently gave CNN’s Anderson Cooper a piece of her mind (after the Orlando Attack)
