CLEVELAND - As the Republican National Convention officially offered the nomination to Donald Trump, our fact checking team continues to verify what’s being said by speakers.
1. Did Trump win the most votes ever in a GOP primary?
For the second night in a row Trump spoke to the crowd, this time by video. It was a brief speech in which highlighted the scale of his win.
"Together we’ve achieved historic results with the largest vote total in the history of the Republican party," he said.
VERIFY: This is true.
Trump did have the most votes for him in a GOP primary; however, he also had more votes against him. The GOP primary also had record turnout.
2. Are more people in Indiana working now than ever in the state's history?
Indiana Governor Mike Pence is Trump's running mate. He takes the stage at the GOP convention Wednesday night.
Indiana Lt. Governor Eric Holcomb made the case that Pence would be good for jobs nationwide by saying, "Under Mike Pence, more Hoosiers are working now than at any time in our 200 year history."
VERIFY: This is an overstatement.
By raw numbers, the amount of workers in Indiana is at an all-time high, but that’s because of population growth.
The percentage of Hoosiers working is a different story. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the current five percent unemployment rate is healthy, but it’s not an all-time low.
The unemployment rate fell to 2.9 percent in October of 2000.
3. Did Hillary Clinton send and receive beyond top secret information in her personal email?
Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey claimed Clinton "sent and received secret, top secret, and beyond top secret information."
VERIFY: This needs context.
Some of the material found on Clinton’s private server had a restriction for what’s called a “special access program” or SAP. Technically, it’s still considered Top Secret, the highest level of classification there is. In practical terms SAP information does come with extra restrictions, leaving justification for this claim.
Our team of fact checkers will be working to verify a variety of claims made at both conventions.
