From Washington, this is voa news. I'm Larry London reporting. Division instead of unity is a dominant narrative on the last day of republican 'national 'convention even as donald 'trump prepares to accept the party's nomination.
The disacccord exposed wed night by texas 'senator 'ted 'cruz's critisms of 'trump continued thur as 'cruz told the states' delegation that he will not cast his prl vote for clinton but declined to say if he will vote for 'trump. "That pledge was not a blanket commitment that if you go and slander and attack Heidi, that I'm going to nonetheless come like a servile puppy dog and say thank you very much for maligning my wife and maligning my father." tonight, donald 'trump will pledge to Americans that safety will be restored and the middle class will experience "profound relief" if he becomes ppr. He will also cast the blame for much of??? on hillary clinton. meanwhile, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine is emerging as the leading contender for clinton's running mate, according to two democrats who caustioned that clinton has not yet made a final decision and still could change directions. the annoucement of clinton's pick could come as early as frid afternoon in Florida. The changes for the conservative-leaning Fox News Channel: Roger Ailes is out as chief executive at the network he built from scratch and ran with an iron hand for nearly 20 years. his resignation follows allegations of sexual harassment of female staffers. Network parent 21st Century Fox said thur that Rupert Murdoch, the company's executive chairman, will run Fox News and its sister Fox Business Network until a successor can be found.
