Thursday's theme was "Make America One Again." The night's speakers focused on a range of issues, from identity politics to security.

On Wednesday Ted Cruz gave a fiery speech in primetime that even solicited some "boos" from the delegates on the convention floor. Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who put up a fight earlier in the week in favor of Cruz, appeared to escort Heidi Cruz off the floor. He told News 3 he grew concerned when the crowd heckled Ted Cruz for not endorsing Donald Trump.

Ivanka Trump spoke alongside her father tonight. Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus also appeared.

Members of the Virginia delegation said at a meeting today they are united behind their nominee. They then closed off the meeting to reporters before Ken Cuccineilli spoke.
