Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called the GOP convention to order at 2 p.m. and recessed the event after unveiling the debt clock.

“This clock reminds every delegate and every American why we are here in Tampa — because America can and must do better,” Priebus said. “Every American’s share of the national debt has increased by approximately $16,000 during the current administration."
