Conservative firebrand Chris Christie and rock-steady nominee spouse Ann Romney are being called on to kick-start an Isaac-shortened GOP convention today with opening speeches aimed at revving up sluggish delegates and setting the stage for Mitt Romney’s nomination.
“He is going to be a dynamo,” said U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) of New Jersey Gov. Christie. “He’s entertaining, he tells it like it is, he zings it to our loyal opposition, and I think this house is going to erupt.”
An added shot of adrenaline will come from Mitt Romney, who will touch down in Tampa today to watch his wife address the convention.
