On the second night of the Republican National Convention, GOP leaders used their disdain for Hillary Clinton as their case for a Donald Trump presidency, NBC News reported.
The presumptive Democratic nominee on Tuesday night, perhaps even more than Trump, was again the star of the convention even as the night was tentatively themed "Make America Work Again" and was meant to focus on the economy.
Few speakers addressed the topic of jobs, using their time on the podium to litigate a host of other issues against Clinton. The former secretary of state provided a desperately needed change of subject for a party bitterly divided over its own nominee's competence, ethics, and policy acumen.
In the best-received speech of the evening, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie didn't discuss the economy at all. He devoted his remarks to "prosecuting" Clinton's foreign policy record point by point for the audience, who shouted "guilty!" at the individual charges.
