Monday in Minneapolis

We arrived in Minneapolis yesterday evening. The city is nice enough and they have put out the red carpet for us.

The important events today include an 8:45 a.m. breakfast meeting of the Ohio delegation with special guest Gov. Tim Pawlenty.

Many of the day's Convention activities have been cancelled. In fact, most have. It is appropriate to do so given that this is probably not the time for politics or celebration. The focus of this Convention has clearly shifted to considering the well-being of the residents of the Gulf States.

I can report that several Cincinnatians have arrived here including Commissioner Pat DeWine, State Central Committee Member Amber Burke, and Joe Sprengard. Joe Deters is expected to arrive today.

Have a great Labor Day!
