Vermont RNC Delegates Hear From Range Of Political Figures, Over Breakfasts

Jul 20, 2016

Much of the focus is on the convention hall speakers at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, but delegates are also hearing from party figures in more intimate, informal settings.

This morning New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani spoke to the Vermont delegates. Giuliani gave a fiery speech on the opening night of the convention but his informal remarks were more low key and designed to provide the Vermonters with a more intimate portrait of party nominee Donald Trump.

Giuliani spoke to them about his long-time friendship with Trump and his family.  
Another speaker was Arkansas freshman Sen. Tom Cotton, considered a rising star in the party and a potential future presidential candidate. At 39, Cotton is the youngest member of the U.S. Senate.

Cotton and other up-and-comers are making the rounds to introduce themselves to the delegates in an effort to build their political futures.
