Convention Update: Citizens Talk About Romney
So far, at the Republican National Convention several political figures such as Newt Gingrich and Jeb Bush have spoken.
The crowd is obviously excited this final night. It's 8:30 p.m. and still a few hours from the big speech, but the seats are filling up faster than the past two nights. The four of us (two kid reporters and two editors) are squeezed into three chairs, and more keep coming.
A live band keeps the crowd energized in between speakers. So far, the speeches have focused on education and the children of America.
The current speaker, Grant Bennet, worked as Mitt Romney's assistant when he was a pastor in the Mormon church. He is talking about all the things Gov. Romney has done to help others in need.
"Mitt is challenging us to find our lives by giving it in service to others," he said.
