Ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage to attend RNC

BY KEYT

DAY 1 - Former UK Independence Party leader and Brexit standard-bearer Nigel Farage will be attending the Republican Convention in Cleveland this week. While Farage has praised presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump in the past, telling CNN's Richard Quest in June that the businessman-turned-politician "dares to talk about things that other people want to brush under the carpet," he said he will not be throwing his support behind any candidate. When Farage was asked who invited him to speak in Cleveland, he told CNN, "not Trump."

BY KVIA

DAY 1 - A hardy band of thousands of supporters are riding into town on iron horses -- a leathered tapestry of bikers primed to celebrate his pending coronation. They'll arrive under the banner of "Bikers for Trump," a loose confederation of motorcycle enthusiasts. "We're anticipating a victory dance," organizer Chris Cox told CNN. "But it sounds like there's a lot of agitators and a lot of troublemakers coming to town. What happens remains to be seen, but you can definitely count on the 'Bikers for Trump' standing with the police department in the event they need it." Over the course of a long campaign, Trump has welcomed the bikers' embrace -- and offered his in return.

Luntz Lays Out What Trump Needs to Accomplish at the RNC

BY FOX INSIDER

PRE RNC - Luntz told Brian Kilmeade the first thing Donald Trump must do is exhibit his presidential abilities. "He's got to demonstrate an ability to lead. He's got to demonstrate an ability to set a tone for the country," Luntz said. Luntz said it's also vitally important that there is unity across the multiple ideologies that make up the GOP. He explained that getting social conservatives back onboard will be a major focus, which is why convention speaker Ted Cruz will play an important role at the event. Finally, Luntz said that Trump needs to put forth one big idea, to create one "Wow!" moment.

Cleveland Beefs Up Security Measures Ahead of RNC

BY FOX INSIDER

PRE RNC - Peter Doocy reported on "Fox and Friends Weekend" today that security officials are adding fences and protective barriers around the Quicken Loans Arena complex. Doocy said that eight-foot-tall metal fences have also been installed, but RNC officials are concerned about their proximity to the venue. He said that the fences are so close to the convention center because the ACLU won a lawsuit, demanding that protesters not be kept so far away from the delegates and dignitaries will be gathering. "They have designated areas where you're allowed to protest for a certain amount of time."
