Ashland Republican Sara Walsh will never forget her trip to the 2016 Republican Convention.

“There were so many favorite moments,” Walsh said on Monday, “but walking onto that floor for the first time, or being there before the convention started and hearing children practice the Pledge of Allegiance as they were going to recite it that night – that was incredible.”

Walsh, a Ted Cruz delegate, said she could barely hear her candidate’s speech, which proved to be one of the controversial moments of the convention as Cruz did not endorse Trump.

“I expected him to get behind Donald Trump,” Walsh said, “but it was unclear what was going on as there was a lot of talking and noise on the floor, some people booing and, then, Trump showed up in the VIP section and that created” a stir among delegates “so I really wasn’t sure what he meant by his speech.”
