    It may seem like an unlikely place for it, but amidst all the political theater, love is in the air at the Republican National Convention.

    Chris Sheldon is a Massachusetts delegate and his now-fiancée, Lacey McGreevy, is with the Rhode Island delegation. The two Donald Trump supporters originally met when they were running for delegate and immediately felt a connection. So, Chris decided the RNC was the perfect place to pop the question.

    “The last couple months have gone great for us, and I thought it made a lot of sense for us to get engaged at the convention,” Sheldon said.

    “It sounds so dumb, so cliché, but when you know, you know. And I’ve heard it from people all the time. It’s just, I know,” McGreevy said. "I literally knew from the first second I kissed him. I was like, I’m going to be with him for the rest of my life.”

    Sheldon had originally planned to propose to McGreevy Thursday night, but she discovered the ring inside a FedEx box on Tuesday. The two went to a benefit concert with Big & Rich that same day, where the country music duo serenaded them with one of their hit songs.

    The couple is planning for a fall wedding.
