Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made the rounds at the Republican National Convention today and the topics ranged from foreign policy to football. Tonight, Senator Rob Portman will speak at the convention. WVXU's Howard Wilkinson talks with Mark Heyne:
Howard Wilkinson will join Mark Heyne each afternoon this week to talk about what's happening at the Republican National Convention. Today, reaction from supporters of Rob Portman about not being tapped for VP, and Ohio delegates hear from Newt Gingrich:
Ohio's delegation to the Republican National Convention - set to begin Monday at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in downtown Tampa - is already gathering in the city on the bay, hoping for a convention that will give its presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, a bounce in the polls.
They're also hoping to stave off disaster - natural disaster, in this case, which is entirely possible given the fact that Tropical Storm Isaac could be at hurricane status by the time it passes by the Tampa Bay area in the Gulf of Mexico, probably on Monday.
