LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Make it official: The Republican Party has nominated Donald Trump for president and Gov. Mike Pence has his vice president.

The New York billionaire has completed a remarkable rise from political outsider to major party nominee for the White House.

New York put him over the top in the delegate count Tuesday night at the Republican National Convention.

There was a disruptive fight on Monday night over the party's rules, but a day later that was history.

There was little drama as party delegates united behind the real estate mogul and reality TV star.

Pence was nominated by Indiana Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb around 8:15 p.m. Tuesday.
