Comments got a bit heated during delegates' talks of the nomination for the party's Republican National Committeeman. While newcomer candidate William Kelly didn't get a second look or even a nod of approval from delegates, others, like Alexander "Sandy" Stuart were specifically questioned on their donations over the years to donate to groups like Planned Parenthood.

Though slightly unorganized, the first day of the convention went off without a hitch.
