MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — From Donald Trump officially becoming the Republican Party’s presidential nominee to more on the record heat, here are the four stories to know for Wednesday, July 20.

Trump Is The GOP Nominee

Donald Trump is officially the Republican Party’s presidential nominee.

The development came on the second day of the Republican National Convention where speakers took turns bashing Hillary Clinton.

Clinton said day one of the convention reminded her of “The Wizard of Oz” — with lots of sound and fury but nothing new from Trump.

Clinton also fired back at Governor Christie over twitter reminding people of his “Bridgegate” scandal.

Garry Marshall Dies

The man who brought us some of the most iconic sitcoms of the 70’s — including “Happy Days” — has died.

Garry Marshall would eventually branch out to the big screen directing hits like ‘Pretty Woman.’ He suffered complications of pneumonia follow a stroke.

Marshall passed away yesterday at the age of 81.

Tiger Woods Out

It’s the first time in his career that Tiger Woods will miss all four majors in a year.

He’s passing on next month’s PGA Championship as he recovers from back surgery.

Right now, Woods is four major titles behind Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18.

Record Heat

The first six months of 2016 were the hottest ever recorded.

That’s according to NASA.

Temperatures were on average about 2 degrees higher between January and June this year.

Australia, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong and Spain were some of the places where temperatures soared more than a degree above average.
