Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Friday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up we'll get Tampa Bay Times columnist Daniel Ruth's take on the just-completed Republican National Convention including the speeches last night by Mitt Romney, Clint Eastwood, and Marco Rubio. And we'll hear from Libertarian-leaning Republicans who were upset that some pro-Ron Paul delegates were not seated at the convention. One major story from the convention that did not get much reporting—the anger by Ron Paul supporters, Constitutionalists, and Libertarian leaning convention attendees over a rules change that prevented some supporters of Ron Paul from being seated as delegates. At least two hundred elected delegates gathered at the Times Forum yesterday to criticize the Republican National Committee for a last minute rule change at the start of the convention which replaced pro Ron Paul delegates with delegates loyal to Mitt Romney. Here are Matt Dubin a delegate from Seattle Washington and Ashley Ryan a delegate from Maine.
