Wilbur upheld, will convention continue

A roll call vote to determine whether convention chairman Kirby Wilbur needed a roll call vote to determine there was a quorum is over.

By a vote of 650 to 296, the convention says he was right in ruling he did not need that.

But now there's a new problem. The convention was due to conclude at 5 p.m., and it's 5:50 p.m.

They now are taking another roll call vote to determine whether they suspend the rules and continue debate on the resolutions.

If they get two-thirds yes, the convention continues. If not, it's over.

Stay tuned.
