Make it official: The Republican Party has nominated Donald Trump for president.

And now the New York billionaire has completed a remarkable rise from political outsider to major party nominee for the White House.

New York put him over the top in the delegate count Tuesday night at the Republican National Convention.

There was a disruptive fight on Monday night over the party's rules, but a day later that was history.

There was little drama as party delegates united behind the real estate mogul and reality TV star.

Donald Trump's former campaign manager -- Corey Lewandowski -- has announced how his home state of New Hampshire is casting its votes for the Republican nomination.

Lewandowski was fired by the Trump campaign last month. But he's remained a vocal supporter of Trump and has advocated for him in his new role as a commentator on CNN.

Lewandowski note that New Hampshire was the first primary contest that Trump won. He says New Hampshire is casting 11 of its votes for "my friend and the next president of the United States, Donald J. Trump."
