good evening, everyone. i'm jim rosenfield reporting live once again from the quicken loans arena in cleveland, ohio. big night tonight for the republicans and donald trump. this is the night he speaks to the american people and accepts his party's nomination for president, and the campaign is hoping that speech will be what people remember and not the controversies we've seen this week. republican nominee donald trump made another brief appearance at the rnc arena last night as the latest convention controversy was unfolding on the stage. trump's entrance to his vip box stole the spotlight from the end of the speech by former rival ted cruz who was booed off the podium when he didn't endorse trump. >> stand and speak and vote your conscience. vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom. >> reporter: trump seemed to take the snub in stride later

5:03 pm
