Leaving St. Paul: GOP Convention Wrap-Up

Following what I thought was a solid but unspectacular speech from GOP nominee John McCain on Thursday night, the Republican National Convention came to a close. A final wrap-up from our Arkansas correspondents in Minneapolis-St. Paul:

Jason Tolbert at the Tolbert Report blog captured nice flashes of color throughout the convention, including some video chats with former Bush advisor Karl Rove and Arkansas Rep. Mark Martin. And did I mention he has footage of Mike Huckabee’s band, Capitol Offense, performing? Oh, yes. He does.

Bill Smith at the ARRA News Service was an official blogger to the convention. He’s got the full video of both the McCain and Sarah Palin acceptance speeches at his blog.

Aaron Sadler of the Stephens Media Washington Bureau reports that Arkansas GOP delegates return home pumped up over the fact that Arkansas will stay red in the ’08 presidential race. Sadler provided some fine blog updates from both the Democratic and Republican conventions, and we’re hoping that his NWAVote blog will remain active through the political season.

    “Arkansas GOP delegates return home pumped up over the fact that Arkansas will stay red in the ‘08 presidential race.”

    Yea! What an accomplishment! Except Arkansas is always red in presidental elections, unless our Governor is running. And then we turn around and vote for dem governor with 56% of the vote (Are the Benton county results in yet?). How about the Arkansas GOP get pumped up and try to figure that out.

    Bryce,
    I’m still waiting on those final numbers from Benton County. I’m pretty sure they’re going to turn this thing for us yet.
    D.
