Washington state Republican delegates get ready to cast their vote for the nomination.

Day two of the Republican National Convention started all abuzz over allegations that Melania Trump's speech the night before plagiarized from Michelle Obama's address at the 2008 Democratic convention. The Trump campaign later denied the charge.

Washington's delegates spent part of the day at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame before heading to the convention's evening festivities.

Outside the convention hall, protesters hit the street in what KUOW reporter David Hyde called a "protest pourri" as voices layered on top of each other in support of different issues.

The big event of the night was to formally vote on Donald Trump's nomination. Following tradition, the candidate's home state casts the deciding votes. That honor fell to New York on Tuesday night.
