Two items got special prayers this morning at the Ohio delegation breakfast… that the levees in Louisiana hold, and that the shuttle bus schedule in Tampa gets straightened out. A major snafu last night left delegates circling the convention center and walking blocks in one direction only to be sent back the other way.
Chairman Bill Bennett says all has been addressed, and his staff spent mostof the night– and well into the moring — trying to ensure no repeat tonight.
Bennett also asked delegates to be polite about the snafu when Reince Priebus, the chairman of the national GOP, shows up to speak here this morning.
Also on the list of speakers this morning, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
