Norm Coleman has been working the rooms so far tonight, visiting with delegates, taking pictures with them. I have not seen any other Federal elected officials yet. This being an uncontested endorsement, there will be a concerted effort to have that be the feel-good moment of the day tomorrow.
Compared with the Minneapolis Convention Center in 2006, the Mayo Civic Center feels a little more like a university gym converted for graduation. The Coleman and McCain campaigns have put up lots of posters and given it a somewhat more festive look, and I spotted a couple of banks of Paulsen signs.
We will be back on the air tomorrow at 5pm. I will post from the convention's media row during the day, so check back as you can for what news there may be tomorrow from here.
