The controversy continues over the speech given by Donald Trump's wife Monday night at the Republican Convention, but the event itself has moved on, with the official nomination of Donald Trump as the party's presidential nominee.

The fallout continues on day two of the Republican National Convention after parts of Melania Trump's speech bared a striking resemblance to the one delivered by Michelle Obama eight years ago.

In the meantime, the convention moved on with the official nomination of Trump as the party's nominee. California Republican party chair Jim Brulte was on the convention floor as the vote began.

"It's absolutely exciting. This is my ninth convention," Brulte said. "What's most interesting to me is two-thirds of the delegates from California have never been to a convention before."

A large California delegation is front and center and solidly pro-Trump.

"California delegates are really supportive of Mr. Trump, there's no dissension in the troops," Cordova said.
