Good evening. Here’s the latest.

1. Vice President Mike Pence will be the headliner at the Republican National Convention tonight.

Mr. Pence is expected to give a speech that sells President Trump’s record rather than promote himself — he is not widely seen as an heir apparent.

The outgoing White House adviser Kellyanne Conway will also take the stage. So will Richard Grenell, the openly gay former ambassador to Germany and former acting director of national intelligence, as part of Mr. Trump’s turnabout to reach out to the L.G.B.T.Q. community.

With the convention at the midway point, there has been far less focus than in the Democratic convention on the pandemic, which has upended life across the U.S. and led to more than 178,000 deaths. Masks and social distancing have been mostly absent, in part thanks to the White House’s ability to test freely.
