Oklahoma delegates score back row seats at GOP convention
TAMPA, Fla. — Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan arrive in Tampa Tuesday to accept the GOP nomination.
Several major polls have Romney and President Obama essentially deadlocked.
Ann Romney is scheduled to be the keynote speaker Tuesday night.
Oklahoma City Mayor, Mick Cornett, will speak at 3:15 p.m.
Governor Mary Fallin speaks between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Tuesday night.
The focus of the convention seems to be convincing swing voters that a super-rich, successful businessman can identify with the middle class.
“We are so used to being entertained and wowed. Do we have to be wowed for everything? Can’t we just vote for somebody that is imminently qualified?” said Nevada delegate Carol Dicarlo.
Oklahoma delegates have some bad seats at the convention this year.
Each year, states jockey for the best spots in the hall.
This year, Massachusetts and Michigan, scored the prime real estate.
