Meadows back on with Tuesday slot at convention


Bumped one day by Tropical Storm Isaac, 11th District GOP Congressional nominee Mark Meadows is back on the platform at the
2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa. He now has a speaking slot between 2:30 and 3:00 Tuesday afternoon.

Meadows, who is favored among handicappers to defeat Democratic nominee and Shuler chief of staff Hayden Rogers, is one of more than a dozen congressional candidates invited to speak during the convention.
“This is such an honor and I am humbled to be invited to speak,” Meadows said in a statement. “I want to join with other conservative candidates to support the Romney/Ryan ticket and make sure that the upcoming election brings real change in Washington.”
