Mitt Romney's RNC Speech Timed for 10 PM—Will You Be Watching?
The newly-minted nominee for president will address the Republican National Convention Thursday night.
Shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will address the Republican National Convention in Tampa and formally accept his party's nomination for President of the United States.
Last night, GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan delivered a warm-up speech of sorts, accusing the Obama administration of widespread failure and promising that the Republican ticket "won’t duck the tough issues" if elected.
Tonight, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, former Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey, and U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida will look to rouse the crowd of Republican delegates and dignitaries before Gov. Romney takes the stage.
So, are you planning to watch any of tonight's speeches? If so, will you be camped out at a bar or following the action from home? And what, if anything, are you hoping to hear tonight from Gov. Romney?
Let us know in the comments, and check the schedule for below for a full rundown of tonight's RNC events. (Network coverage is mostly limited to the late speeches, but CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and other cable channels will carry much of the earlier proceedings.)
