Update From The Republican Convention

Update From The Republican Convention

Mitt Romney becomes the official GOP presidential nominee and the speeches begin. Please join Diane and guests to discuss the latest developments at the Republican National Convention.

Mitt Romney officially became the Republican Party’s 2012 nominee at the Republican National Convention yesterday. Hours later the full bore effort to broaden his appeal began. His wife, Anne Romney and up and coming Republican Party leader, Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey gave speeches aimed at weak spots in Governor Romney's support: female voters and undecided voters dissatisfied with President Obama’s performance. This week’s Republican convention presents a critical opportunity for Romney to re-introduce himself on the national stage. Please join us for an update from the convention
