With scant prominent figures in the Republican Party willing to volunteer themselves to speak at the upcoming GOP national convention in July, real estate mogul and presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump has turned to "family, sports figures and business leaders" to fill the gap, CNN reported.
|Just because I act like one, doesn't mean I'm an asshole.|
A number of high-profile Republicans, including former nominees Gov. Mitt Romney and Sen. John McCain, have stated their intent to skip this year's nominating convention.
