For all the drama that surrounded the Republican primary season, the convention to formally nominate Mitt Romney as the party’s candidate for president is likely to be suspense-free.
Well, maybe not completely.
Aside from Romney’s coronation, the August 27-30 convention at the Tampa Bay Times Forum will host another show: Ron Paul’s farewell.
The 76-year-old representative from Texas will retire from Congress after November’s elections, capping a long and colorful career. He is looking to take some of the limelight away from his former rival in the primaries.
Paul’s followers – a small but intensely loyal band – have been collecting small packs of delegates from across the country since the congressman stopped campaigning in May, and they plan to be a forceful voice in Tampa.
