Mitt Romney Should be GOP Presidential Candidate as Network Newscasts Begin
At long last, Mitt Romney should be the Republican Party’s official candidate for U.S. President in time for tonight's national network’s evening news.
Delegates are expected to vote on the party platform at 4:40 p.m., with the roll call of state for the presidential nomination at 5:20 p.m.
The usually boisterous process should be completed around 6:30 p.m., as the networks begin their nightly news casts.
The other big items of the night, speeches from Ann Romney and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will come in prime time.
At 10:05 p.m., Romney will undertake what has become a recent tradition in First Ladies and presumptive First Ladies giving remarks about the character of their husbands in the run-up to the candidate’s nomination acceptance speech.
Christie, taking a more party line approach, is set to go on at 10:35 p.m.
The other big appearance of the night should be available on the cable networks, former U.S. Senator and GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s remarks coming sometime at 9:15 p.m.
