Note: Dalton is representing the state of Kansas as a GOP Page. He’s writing a daily column documenting his adventures — and giving us an insider’s look at what young conservatives are doing in Tampa.
That is the only word to describe Day Two of convention work for the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa.
My day started at 5:00 a.m. with an early wakeup call — and it ended shortly after 2:00 a.m. on Wednesday.
But the experience I had yesterday was well worth the pain I will suffer today.
I had the privilege of being interviewed by Fox News Channel’s one and only Todd Starnes. The segment covered the “Day in the Life of a Republican Page.” I was the page!
Be sure to watch Fox & Friends to watch a rocking-out, freedom-loving, and hardworking page. (That would be me!)
Following the interview with Fox News, I returned back to my duties as a page, including passing out literature, directing traffic, and most importantly being the cheerleader for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan!
These two outstanding men will lead our nation in fiscal responsibility, family values, and the restoration of the American Dream.
I had the honor of meeting so many VIPS — from members of the media to high-profile Republicans.
Yesterday’s prominent speakers included, Wis. Gov. Scott Walker, former Penn. Senator Rick Santorum, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and the next First Lady of the United States, Ann Romney.
Like I tweeted following Mrs. Romney’s speech “She just won him an election!”
Mrs. Romney showed us Mitt as a dad, husband and grandfather; contrary to Obama’s belief that he kills woman.
The future First Lady electrified the crowd and brought some to tears. Signs shot up across the room with the words “We Love Ann” and chants of “Yes We Ann! Yes We Ann!”
Two speakers, I previously knew little about, had me on my feet enthused about the November election and the endless possibilities in America.
Former Congressman Artur Davis, the gentleman –bwho originally seconded the motion that made Barack Obama the Democratic nominee four years ago — has officially endorsed Mitt Romney for president.
Mr. Davis, now a Republican, spoke to those who may feel the same he does, those who realize the false hope and want real change in the Oval Office.
The second speaker, I will predict right now, will be a future occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. — Mia Love, the congressional candidate from Utah’s 4th Congressional District.
Mrs. Love’s speech was by far the most inspiring speech I heard all night. She is the conservative Mayor of Saratoga Springs — known for cutting expenses and getting a AA+ bond rating.
I don’t know what experiences can top yesterday but I have a feeling each day will get even more exciting.
I need a nap.
