SC Delegates Describe Fractured, Frustrated GOP Convention

Republican ElephantCOLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – The Republican Party may have nominated Donald Trump, but some South Carolina delegates are discouraged by what they describe as divisiveness and negativity at the Republican National Convention.
State Sen. Tom Davis told The Associated Press on Wednesday the convention is focusing too much on “demonizing” Hillary Clinton and not enough time discussing how it will heal after a fracturing primary season.
Talk radio host Bill Pickle expressed frustration at “name calling and childish behavior” among some speakers.
That included New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who on Tuesday effectively put Clinton through a trial-by-delegates “for her performance and her character.” The audience responded with chants of “Lock her up! Lock her up!”
Pickle said he’d had to walk away from vendors hawking materials using sexist slurs to describe Clinton.
