Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus officially gaveled in the Republican convention's beginning at 2 p.m. EDT today. He spoke for less than one minute - and when Chairman Priebus gaveled Monday's session to a close, the clock had already hit over $2 million.
The Republicans mean to highlight just how fast debt is being added - and it will be a hefty price over a mere four days of the convention.
Of course, the GOP has their own version of a debt clock, sitting now at just under $16 trillion. It may pass that mark in the next four days.
