Killing time

The quorum count continues at the Spokane Convention Center, and the delegates are restless.

They do "the wave" through the convention floor, but quickly tire of it.

They sing "God Bless America," then "The Star Spangled Banner," which prompts the delegates to stand and put their hands over their hearts.

Convention chair Kirby Wilbur says that they're almost finished with the count, but because the delegates are standing, it's getting difficult to count some areas.

They stop singing and sit down.
