Donald Trump takes the stage on Thursday night in Cleveland to formally accept the Republican Party’s nomination for president. Scattered across the convention hall floor, delegates from around New England will cheer in support of a candidate who’s run largely on an anti-establishment platform.

Healy is an alternate delegate at the convention. He says Connecticut Republicans didn’t overwhelmingly vote for Donald Trump in the state’s April 26th primary, so he can’t quite figure out how the state got such good seats in front of the main podium.
