We just got back from the Welcome Reception for the Delegates. It was a nice set up in Downtown Minneapolis at the Minneapolis Convention Center. There was, of course, lots of food but the theme was a “Civic Forum.” There were displays of the White House, Air Force One, the founding documents, different historical flags, and more historical campaign memorabilia than I could list. As a history buff and political junkie, I ate it up.
We also received a copy of our schedule for tomorrow. We will still have our Arkansas Delegation breakfast tomorrow morning and hopefully Gov. Huckabee will be speaking. The Convention will be an abbreviated business session tomorrow afternoon from 2:30 to 5:00. I will post some updates and hopefully video tomorrow. Obviously, our thoughts and prayers are will the residence of the Gulf Coast.
