Being conventional

Hawaii Republicans joined with their brethren from around the country today in Tampa to formally nominate the GOP presidential ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan at the Republican National Convention.

Erin Kealoha Fale (above) had the honor of announcing Hawaii’s delegate count on the convention floor during the roll call of states.

Tuesday’s events marked the first full day of activities for the convention after Monday’s abbreviated session that was shortened over the weekend when it appeared Tropical Storm Isaac might make landfall on Tampa. The storm bypassed Florida, strengthened to a hurricane and made landfall Tuesday in Louisiana.

Highlights from Tuesday’s schedule included speeches by Romney’s wife, Ann, and the keynote address by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
