eric trump, if you recall, was next in line to speak. he's standing there just off the wings of the podium when cruz was being booed off. i said did that make it more difficult for you to come out? he said on the contrary, by that time people were shouting trump, trump, trump, so he thought his task was easier. i i also talked to donald trump jr. about the overall tone. he rejects the idea there's been missteps and controversies of note here. we'll let others judge that, but i asked him if he had offered input to his father in terms of the speech, if he could characterize the speech. he would only say that, look, it's his father's vision, you know, he calls the shots here. he's very involved in the minute details and we offer thoughts and back and forth but it really is his call. so no real nuggets about the specifics of the speech. >> do you think, lester, we know the teleprompter is out there. we know that large portions of the speech, of course, he's going to be reading off that
4:17 pm
teleprompter, but donald trump so unpredictable, perhaps he'll go off script in some places tonight. could it happen? >> i don't think anybody would be surprised if he goes off script. a lot of the things on the schedule this week involving donald trump, they basically say this is how it's going to happen and then they always add a little caution, but it's donald trump. he can do what he wants. you talked to the sons about this. everybody knows what got donald trump here, what got him the nomination. that's being that free wheeling guy who sometimes shoots from the hip. is nonpolitically correct. is willing to poke the establishment in the eye. that's what got him here, so he's got to give this audience what they have come to expect. at the same time, he's got this really careful, narrow line he's got to walk along to reassure the rest of the country that, you know, he's got it together, that he can lead this country. so some people will be looking for a little bit more statesmanlike donald trump while at the same time he's trying to please those who became his fans

good afternoon once again, everybody. i'm jim rosenfield reporting
4:30 pm
live from the quicken field arena and the republican national convention here in cleveland, ohio. tonight is the main event. a former reality tv star will formally accept his party's nomination for president, and donald trump will give a speech tonight that will lay out the case as to why he should be the one to move into the oval office, and trump earlier today with his daughter made a final walk through of the convention stage inside this arena. it was the last chance for him and his daughter, ivanka, to get comfortable with the view from the podium before they return to the stage tonight to both give prime time speeches. still a lot of buzz about last night's speech by trump's formal rival ted cruz. cruz did not endorse trump during his speech, and today he said it was because of the personal attacks trump made against his family. now, cruz, of course, not the only republican senator not to endorse donald trump at this point. our senator from pennsylvania, pat toomey, has not endorsed trump for president at this point either, and he is not here
4:31 pm
at the convention. where was he today? in philadelphia and nbc 10's rosemary connors had a chance to speak with him. >> voteconscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket. >> reporter: two senator cruz didn't say, no endorsement, took the spotlight at the rnc. pat toomey of pennsylvania also has not endorsed presidential nominee donald trump. today toomey is weighing in on the latest buzz from cleveland. after last night's speech by ted cruz at the rnc, some of your colleagues in congress, some of your republican colleagues said he was selfish, put himself above the party. what do you think? >> i'll leave it to people to make their own judgment about how to characterize what senator cruz did last night. my own view, look, i have been very clear, i have got significant differences with donald trump. i have reservations about donald trump as many republicans do, but when there's not a contested
4:32 pm
convention, the night at the convention is for the nominee, and so there's a right way and a wrong way to do this. personally, i think ted cruz took the wrong way. >> reporter: unlike cruz, senator toomey did not go to cleveland this week. instead, he's campaigning across pennsylvania ahead ever his own race. toomey admits he has reservations about trump, but that the presidential contender is taking constructive steps in the right direction. >> i'm looking for tone and demeanor, temperament as well as some specifics on policy. >> reporter: senator toomey along with other republicans reluctant to lend their support may hear just what they're looking for tonight when trump takes the stage. i'm rosemary connors, nbc 10 news. >> so toomey still deciding, and we know, of course, he is facing re-election coming up in november facing the democrat katie mcginty. he said he wanted to spend this week campaigning in the state of pennsylvania instead of being here in cleveland. with that we'll send it back to
4:33 pm
you, keith and jacqueline. >> jim, we've already seen such a dramatic smoky entrance from donald trump earlier this week when he introduced his wife melania. is the talk in cleveland now that we'll see more of that fanfare or will it be necessary for him to have a more presidential feel this evening rather than all the pomp and circumstance? >> reporter: well, we just heard lester holt talk about that dilemma, statesmanlike versus the showman. i spoke earlier today with nbc's peter alexander who has been covering this campaign all along. he said he would not be at all surprised if there is some sort of showmanlike entrance. the nbc cameras have been trained on the podium to see. there are trap doors on the stage for things to rise and fall and so we'll have to wait and see what kind of entrance he makes. yes, it was dramatic on monday with the lighting and the smoke, but perhaps it will be more statesmanlike tonight. we'll just have to wait and see and he will here to find out. >> you have the difficult position trying to be the analyst trying to determine what
4:34 pm
the most unpredictable candidate will do tonight. we appreciate your insights as best you can do. >> happy to do it. >> expecting the unexpected. >> exactly. tonight is the most anticipated night of the convention yet. nbc 10 has it covered around the clock. you can tap the nbc app for more coverage of what's happening in cleveland and local reaction. turn to some breaking news now. fox news network ceo roger ailes is resigning amid allegations he sexually harassed a form he news anchor. he's been a towering force in media and republican politics for decades. that former news anchor says ailes fired her in june after she rebuffed his advances. he denies the claim. almost time to clear the shelters. join us as we try to find forever homes for adoptable pets on saturday. >> tonight we look at the important role fostering plays
4:35 pm
in the process. one of the main reasons wet nose dog rescue in west philly has placed so many pets is the dedication of foster families. by fostering dogs for a short period of time, it allows shelters to take in more animals and give the dogs a more caring home. >> they have never been played with. they don't flow what a toy is. they don't know how to go up and down steps. >> one reason people are hesitant to foster is that it's just so hard to give the dog up in the end. but many rescue groups allow foster families to stay in touch with their animals after they're adopted. >> adorable, that pup. the stars of the rio olympics are doing their part to help clear the shelters. they posed with puppies for a photo shoot and all these pups were later adopted. you can see this gallery on the nbc 10 app. you can do your part to help clear the shelter this is saturday. dozens of local shelters are
