usatoday.com — 102 days. More than a year after Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump announced their presidential campaigns, and after months of bitter primaries that took unexpected turns in both parties, the sprint to November has started.

usatoday.com — CLEVELAND - Donald Trump, unconventional from the start, did the unprecedented on the first night of the convention poised to nominate him for president: He showed up on stage. "We're going to win," he told the arena. "We're going to win so big."
wcnc.com — CLEVELAND - Team Trump sees the Republican National Convention as a second chance for Donald Trump to make a first impression with the women who are likely to decide the presidential election.
caller.com — The billionaire businessman's standing with female voters, which has hit historically dismal levels, is prompting some of his advisers to try to moderate his tone, hone his message on security and spotlight daughter Ivanka at the GOP conclave that is poised to nominate him for president this week.
