KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Republican National Committee has
made its 2012 convention city official.
The committee voted to approve a plan to hold its presidential
nomination convention in Tampa, Fla.
It was a formality. The RNC had announced the decision earlier.
Florida is a crucial swing state - and one that President Barack
Obama put in the Democratic column in 2008.
Republicans want it back and are hoping to boost their prospects
by hosting the convention in the state.
