Are so -- -- -- and get things rolling here the reason we're here all kicks off today.
Governor Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan should arrive at mid morning where we're being told -- at 11 o'clock something like that of the Republican National Convention.
We saw the pictures of them preparing as they were getting ready yesterday the governor is expected to formally receive his party's nomination for president later today.
I chairman Ryan's team previous -- Republican Party kicked up the convention yesterday and that abbreviated session -- black.
It is my privilege -- claimed the 2012.
Republican National Convention.
In session and called tall order.
Republican National Convention stands in recess.
Subject to the call of the chair.
-- -- to people who may have some anticipatory butterflies today are the two biggest speeches of tonight.
And Romney will be center stage this evening as she makes the argument -- her husband's candidacy as president -- states.
Are we talk a lot about that throughout the course of the next couple of hours with the expectations are there and that man.
The governor of the state of New Jersey the great state of New Jersey every -- is my home state.
He is one of governor -- strongest supporters lots of focus tonight on what his speech is going to be like.
How much she will last to rape from the -- -- he has said he might.
Steve Brown joins us now live he is outside the convention Saturday morning Steve.
-- worry more than.
-- me a little bit about what we expect tonight.
Well as far as and Romney says speech as she spent ever day yesterday.
Much like her husband and much like -- husband's running mate.
And size that they will be using inside the convention -- itself.
We know little else about the speech other than her husband says that.
He likes her speech very much which is not really -- we do know also from poor reporting.
Romney did have time yesterday amidst all that practice to -- Several 10000.
We were told -- -- which are like stones with raisins which she is bringing it here through Tampa to distribute to friends so I suppose you could.
Measure your place on the totem pole that -- -- French or whether you get one of those -- -- part of.
Do you want that is used to accomplish a lot where some of us are still trying to figure out he does all that and so let's talk a little bit about Governor Christie.
Obviously he is known as a bold guy his statements get him in the news quite often.
But this is serious moment for him tonight and terms of his own.
Political part of the stage in his future and also of course primarily of his support for governor -- this evening.
Exactly and there were some suggestions of perhaps Chris Christie would have to tone down his speech in some fashion for a nationwide audience that.
Notion was dismissed by RNC chairman -- previous this morning analysts.
I think -- prosecuting -- -- -- For what he promised she would deliver in this country and what is delivered is something that Chris Christie can do very well right.
And then also I think in Tennessee.
Aside a Governor -- that maybe sometimes doesn't tell always come across in the 32 collapse.
The New York Times reports that in a recent town hall meeting Christie said that he would talk a bit and maybe more than a bit about himself and how we got to where he was a little bit about his American story.
Maybe a central portion of that speech Martha.
Yeah a lot of blanks to fill in -- perhaps for people who see the sound bites but don't know not well and this is clearly an opportunity for him to do that tonight Steve.
Thank you so much you'll see that later.
