Concern about Tropical Storm Issac pushed the Republican National Convention to move its start in Tampa to Tuesday.
But with a lot of Republicans in Tampa, that doesn't mean nothing happened on Monday.
Summit County's Bryan Williams is an alternate delegate to the convention.
He says that there were plenty of meetings among Ohio delegates, and a chance to hear from some notables.
"We got a chance to meet Josh Romney, who is the second oldest son of Gov. Romney's, and he spoke on behalf of his father," Williams tells AkronNewsNow. "Ari Fleischer, who was a former press secretary for President Bush, spoke."
Williams says former House speaker and ex-Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich talked to the Ohio delegation about the importance of energy to Republican candidates.
"(It's) very important to Ohio, because of the 500 million barrels of oil that are underneath the ground," Williams tells AkronNewsNow. "and he talked about how that is going to become a key campaign issue."
Williams says even though no official convention business happened Monday, the delegates had a lot to do.
"We also got updated as to the rules, and the other mechanics of running the convention", Williams says. "We've got a lot to do though we're not at the convention hall yet."
Williams says that'll happen on Tuesday afternoon.
The Republican National Convention is set to official start activities on Tuesday. Williams will be on the WAKR Ray Horner Morning Show Tuesday at 7:10 AM on 1590 WAKR.
