The Republican National Convention wrapped up last night in a flurry of speeches about the dark days of America. As one New York Times reporter summed it up:

“Mr. Trump sounded much like the unreflective man who had started it with an escalator ride in the lobby of Trump Tower: He conjured up chaos and promised overnight solutions.” We check in a final time with our Santa Fe Republican delegate Samuel LeDoux.

Last night once again presented some bumps in the road for the Republican party and it’s nominee Donald Trump, particularly when Ted Cruz was booed off the stage after encouraging delegates to vote their conscience and not necessarily to vote for their nominee Donald Trump. As one politico blogger put it:Cruz’s defiance catapulted the ragged, plagiarism-marred, poorly managed convention into nuclear dumpster fire territory.

That was one opinion.

But things remained optimistic for our delegate Samuel LeDoux, who had nothing but praise for last night’s lineup of speakers.
