6:01 pm
like a puppy dog and say thank you, very much, for maligning my wife and maligning my father. >> reporter: now, what happened last night was that cruz was booed off stage by delegates here in the arena he said vote your conscious, he used that phrase which is linked to the never trump movement and did not give that endorsement which so many delegates really wanted to hear. at that moment donald trump was making his way in the arena. it was an interesting moment to be here. true to form donald trump tweeted bit. he said wow, ted cruz got boed off the station. i saw his speech two hours earlier but let let him speak anyway no big deal. while all this is happening our pennsylvania delegation continues to meet and they continue to get a lot of attention from the big names here because pennsylvania is going to be a critical state come november. today vice-president nominee mike pence stopped by. >> the next vice-president of
6:02 pm
the united states michael pen ce. >> reporter: it was early but when mike pence walk in this pennsylvania delegation was wide awake ready to hear what he had to say. >> i promise you that donald trump and mike pence will be standing and campaign shoulder to shoulder with you, across the four corners of the pennsylvania. >> reporter: republicans believe that they can win in pennsylvania for the first time since 1988. seeing importance in the general election has led to some big name visitors like pence to address the delegation. >> for so long we have heard how important pennsylvania is and we never quite get there but so early in this process you can see how important pennsylvania is and it the is just raising the energy level here and enthusiasm for delegates. >> reporter: former pennsylvania governor tom corbett a pence friend and supporters told "eyewitness news" that the key to the republican victory in pennsylvania is organization. >> i think it is how they get message out but you still need your ground organization, and
6:03 pm
party has got to be organized by precinct, by county, and by redo of the state. >> reporter: a lot of that responsibility will fall on the pennsylvania republican party, and because the trump campaign does not have a a conventional set up. it is that very difference in the way trump does things that has drawn in supporters in the pennsylvania delegation. >> i have never ever been in politics. i was a trump supporter and contacted them and in my district it was, trump delegate and somehow managed to gete elected. >> reporter: there are several members of the delegation who has that exact same story. we are not forgetting the first state either. we caught up with the member of the delaware delegation to see how their experience has been and here's what they had to say. >> delaware 61 percent of the vote statewide came out in support of the mr. trump. lower counties, sussex county
6:04 pm
71 percent of the eligible voters voted for mr. trum from that county, one of the top five in the number of counties >> reporter: so they are all very much looking forward to hearing from donald trump tonight. lets go to the new jersey delegation, and they are about 20 miles outside of town, and they were hearing from their governor, new jersey governor chris christie, and he talk about 250 members of that delegation today. he was at their breakfast. this is video of christie with the delegation on tuesday night that you are about to see. governor christie told them that one of the reasons why he back doctor trump after getting out of the race was to make the new jersey g.o.p. a national player in national politics. he also lashed out at ted cruz for refusing to endorse trump. >> listen, didn't want to sign the pledge at the time. i thought it was stupid. but while it was it was meaningful. you put your signature on a piece of paper that was unequivocal. it wasn't like i'll support
6:05 pm
the republican nominee for president if i like him. i'll support the republican nominee for president if i feel like it. i'll support the republican nominee for president if i happen to be in town this day. it didn't say. that it said i will promise that i will support the republican nominee for president. >> reporter: i have heard that from a lot of delegates that i have spoken to he said well, he is the nominee, party nominee and they want to support him. i want to bring in allison young our republican analyst now allison we have made it to the big night now and everybody wants to know it is 1 billion-dollar question will donald trump stick to the script which is prepare remarks or does he go off script what is your gut. >> i think it is a 50/50 shot, i don't even have a gut on this one because i think half people want him to stick to the script. they want to see a message that shows what a good leader he will be and how this convention will unite us and walk out here a united party.
6:06 pm
there are just as many people to wait to go off script and say something that will get them excited and remine them of the person they met during the primary part of the campaign about the person that donald trump is. one of the cool things we have from our vantage point is we can see teleprompter. we have a great vantage point to see if he is sticking to the script or letting trump be trump. >> we will be watching that very, very closely. what is interesting about that too is there is two groups of people. obviously people drawn to donald trump are train to want him to rip on things. they want him to be trump, but do you think to appeal to the independents, to bring in those new voters, needs to stick to the script and look like melania said is presidential. >> i have talk to a number of people out and about around cleveland both with the delegations and from some people on the street they want to sees a unifying message. they want to see him being presidential from my time in the white house i work for a president who had a few gaffs
6:07 pm
every now and again people didn't feel he was presidential. what people want to see from trump tonight we know he can be the character but can he be the presidential leader that we need him to be. >> reporter: allison young we will all be watching. thanks very much. to that end we will see you at 10:00 o'clock on the cw philly and, of course, right here after trump formally accepts the nomination, guys. >> looking forward to it, we will see you both later tonight, thanks very much. city of philadelphia is putting final touches as delegates prior to arrive for the democratic national convention. we are just four days away from the start of the dnc and there is a lot of activity around the wells fargo center, fdr park, art museum and independent mall. our natasha brown introduces us to the man whose company helped bill the stage for dnc there is a flurry of activity outside the wells fargo center in south philadelphia, just days ahead of the democratic national convention. while is there still a shroud
