Mark Alderman, chairman of Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies, and Jim Schultz, chair of Cozen O’Connor’s Government Law and Regulatory Affairs practice group, discuss day one of the Republican National Convention in their "Political Punchout" on NBC10 News. In particular, Mark and Jim discuss the Republican Party’s support for the Republican candidate, Donald Trump. Jim says, “We saw the never-Trumpers strike out and they took their bat and their ball and went home. Going forward we’re going to have a tremendous convention here. The party is clearly coming together.” Conversely, Mark says, “What we saw is what everybody knows. This party is not unified behind Donald Trump. As significant as the floor fight is who is not here, nationally and from Pennsylvania. This is Donald Trump’s convention, it is not the convention of a unified Republican party.”
