Republican National Convention
Clint Eastwood, the Hollywood filmmaker and Northern California native who knows all about sticking to the script, turned in a bizarre, unscripted endorsement of Republican Mitt Romney Thursday night.
In this KCBS exclusive, reporter Doug Sovern at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, found out that the Romney campaign has barred merchants from selling their wares at the event, instead setting up their own store.
California delegates gave rave reviews to Wednesday night’s big speeches at the Republican National Convention from Stanford’s Condoleezza Rice and vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan.
While Paul Ryan is entitled to his own opinions, he is not entitled to his own facts. He lied to America about Medicare. He lied to America about the debt commission. He really lied to America about the stimulus and America’s debt rating.
The current Stanford professor spoke at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, where Mitt Romney will formally accept the Republican presidential nomination..
In his continuing coverage of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, KCBS’ Doug Sovern talked to one of the youngest delegates at the event, a 17-year-old Santa Cruz teen living out one her dreams.
While the Romney-Ryan ticket has a newly adopted platform that calls for a constitutional amendment banning all abortions, California’s pro-choice Republicans remain supportive of the candidates.
The speech gave much of what Ann and Mitt Romney have been trying to reveal about themselves throughout the misleading negative campaigning of 2012 which has put them on some imaginary pedestal due to Mitt Romney’s business success and extreme wealth. They, too, like most American families, have obviously experienced life’s uncertain challenges intertwined with their successes.
“So as Republicans continue to distort the president’s words and push their ‘We built that’ theme in Tampa,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said from the “war room” Democrats have set up in downtown Tampa near the convention site. “It’s worth asking: What did [Mitt] Romney build?”
In a roll call of states at the Republican National Convention, former California Gov. Pete Wilson cast the votes of all the Golden State’s delegates for Romney and compared him to former President Ronald Reagan of California.
