2008 Republican National Convention

The Republican National Convention was held September 1-4, 2008CE
at the Xcel Energy Center in downtown St. Paul, MN.

I covered the event for KFAI-FM, Fresh Air Radio. Over the four days of the convention, I recorded 40 interviews, some of which went out on the radio, and the rest were posted on LiveJournal. All of them, and my other political reporting, are collected on the Shockwave Radio Theater Audio Page.
In this picture gallery, I've linked the pictures of interviewees with their interview when available.

Thumbs cropped different than main picture. Surprise!

All pictures taken by Baron Dave Romm except the ones he's in. Corrections encouraged.
A more full description is in the annotation of the larger picture. Click on the thumbnail.
Pictures are in chronological order. Best way to view the gallery is to start with the first main picture and continue through, following the flow of the event.
