Republican Convention To Show Ron Paul Tribute: Bringing Them Home To Papa

By Susan Duclos

The Hill reports that on the second day of the Republican convention in Tampa, there will be a video tribute to Ron Paul shown,  requested by Paul's people and agreed to by Romney and the RNC.

The second day of the Republican convention will feature a video tribute to Ron Paul, the Romney campaign announced Friday.

The film is one of many accommodations for the former Republican presidential hopeful and his network of supporters at the convention. Paul's son, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), will be speaking on Monday, and the Texas lawmaker himself is planning a day-long rally with supporters on the Sunday proceeding the convention.

"While they certainly disagree on many issues, they have always had, if you watch the debates, a lot of mutual respect between them. Congressman Paul's people came to us and said they'd like to do a small tribute to him, and we said absolutely," said Romney adviser Russ Schriefer during a conference call with reporters.

Other convention news is that breaking with precedent, GOP delegates will vote to nominate Romney officially on Monday, although his acceptance speech is still scheduled for next Thursday.
