Full Tampa RNC Convention Schedule

The Tampa RNC Convention Committee has released the full convention schedule for this week. As you may know, the events that were previously scheduled for Monday were all re-scheduled for Tuesday as a safety precaution due to Hurricane Isaac. The convention will still end on Thursday as previously scheduled with Governor Romney as the concluding speaker.

Below is the entire convention schedule in a nicely laid out table for your reference during the week. (In case you are wondering, the late night schedule is designed for prime-time viewing on the major networks.) The schedule is very long so I have hidden it below the fold. If you are viewing this from the home page of our website click the ‘more’ button to view the schedule.
