The final night of the Republican National Convention is set to begin in a few hours and Mitt Romney will take the stage around 10:30p.m.
The last two nights in Tampa have been filled with high energy and speech after speech supporting the Republican Presidential nominee.
Wednesday night, Paul Ryan fired up the crowd and spoke a lot about policy and finances. He criticized the Obama Administration for what he called out of control spending habits, creating more debt for the nation than any other president before him. He promised a Romney/Ryan ticket would change the way Washington spends money.
Representative Paul Ryan said, “We will not duck the tough issues, we will lead. We will not spend the next four years blaming others, we will take responsibility. We will not try to replace our founding principles; we will reapply our founding principles.”
Romney’s speech will be the most important one yet. This is his first opportunity he will have as the official republican nominee for president to convince New York and the nation that his ideas, his agenda, and his views on government are better than Barack Obama’s and he’ll be making the speech on a stage that he helped shape. The stage went through six different renderings before Romney gave his final stamp of approval.
Party favorite Senator Marco Rubio from Florida will introduce Mitt Romney. NBC will begin its coverage of the Republican National Convention at 10:00p.m.
