CLEVELAND, OH -- The Republican National Convention is now underway in Cleveland and Patti Adair, from Sisters, is there. This is her second GOP convention; four years ago, she was in Tampa, Florida. But, she tells KBND News, this time, her family is nervous for her safety. "I don't want anything to happen - my mom is worried about me. The only thing I was worried about in Tampa was a hurricane. There was a hurricane that came in the week before; it didn't amount to much and didn't really hit Tampa. But, that's one thing, to worry about a hurricane. But, the other thing is to worry about protesters and who's going to have a gun and what is going to happen."

On Friday, Donald Trump announced he has chosen Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate. Adair is a Trump delegate and is looking forward to hearing all of the primetime speeches. "I think it should be a fascinating week. I really love the media center. Last time I went, I met Marsha Blackburn, she's a Congresswoman from Tennessee. She came and spoke to my Republican group. I mean, the opportunities to network at this are phenomenal."
The theme of the first day of the convention is "Make America Safe Again" and Donald Trump's wife Melania is scheduled to speak. On Tuesday, it's "Make America Work Again," with Donald Trump, Jr and former GOP Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson expected to speak. It's "Make America First Again," on Wednesday, with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and VP presumptive nominee Mike Pence speaking. Finally, on Thursday, the theme is "Make America One Again," with Ivanka and Donald Trump both scheduled to speak.
