With Day One of the Republican National Convention in the can, the GOP heads into the second day of its Cleveland rally. Per the Hill, Tuesday's convention theme will center on the slogan "Make America Work Again," and to bolster Donald Trump's message that his business acumen makes him the obvious choice to lead the US into economic prosperity, a lineup of speakers is set to take the stage. Among them: Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, Kerry Woolard (GM of Trump Winery), and Donald Trump Jr., who's an executive VP at the Trump Organization. Donald Sr.'s 22-year-old daughter, Tiffany, who USA Today notes just graduated from the University of Pennsylvania this year, will also speak—her most high-profile appearance in the campaign yet.

Also on the roster: Speaker Paul Ryan, whose perpetual exasperation and frustration with Trump makes his speech one of the most highly anticipated of the night. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will also have something to say, as will Ben Carson and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who didn't seem fazed at Monday's convention gathering about not being chosen as Trump's running mate. "I'm going to make a case tonight that Donald Trump is ready to be president of the United States, and perhaps his opponent is not," Christie said on the Today show Tuesday morning, per USA Today. A handful of C-list celebrities have also been slated in, including soap opera star Kimberlin Brown and Dana White, head of the UFC mixed martial arts promotion company. (The highlight from Monday's convention: Melania Trump's speech.)
