Washington state Republicans have a whole morning of speechifying ahead of them.
Their convention is set to kick off at 9:15 a.m. with the standard pomp and circumstances, then a welcome address from Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers.
She'll be followed by Reps. Doc Hastings and Dave Reichert, gubernatorial hopeful Dino Rossi, State Attorney General Rob McKenna, Secretary of State Sam Reed, Public Lands Commissioner Doug Sutherland, State Sen Mike Hewitt and State Rep. Richard DeBolt.
One of the delegates walking around on the floor has a T-shirt that says "No Bloviating." He's about to be sorely disappointed.
