TAMPA, Fla. -- On Tuesday there was a great event with Congressman Charlie Dent and Sen. Pat Toomey that was well attended. The entire delegation has gotten pretty close as we are starting to learn about each other and our different areas as well.

At the convention last night, Ann Romney stole the show. I felt bad for Gov. Chris Christie having to follow her act. Ann Romney really showed a different side of Mitt that we haven't really seen.

Former Democratic Congressman Artus Davis was happy to show up and endorse Gov. Romney saying that President Obama has led us down the wrong path of Americanism.

Last night there was an event within the hotel for the Pennsylvania delegation just to welcome everyone back after the convention proceedings.

This morning, Gov. Christie will be speaking to the Pennsylvania delegation. I am really excited to hear him speak again, but this time not having to follow the next First Lady!

Tuesday started off with a breakfast featuring a few big names including Speaker of the House John Boehner, Josh Romney, and Frank Luntz.

Boehner really stole the show giving a very good speech -- even making fun of the way people pronounce his name. Somebody bumped the lights while he was speaking, and we learned what Speaker Boehner looks like with some ??mood lighting.?

After the breakfast, Gov. Tom Corbett and Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley shook hands and took pictures as well as U.S. congressmen from Pennsylvania.

Last night, Pennsylvania Speaker of the House Sam Smith hosted a "Whiskey Rebellion," which was very well attended for members of the Pennsylvania delegation.
