The Kentucky delegation has now heard from their representatives as both U.S. Senators took center stage last night but tonight, Republicans attending the convention in Tampa as well as those at home will get what they have been waiting for.

Mitt Romney formally accepts the Republican nomination for President with his speech tonight.

President of the Kentucky Young Republicans Tres Watson is with the Kentucky group, although he is not serving as a delegate. He said he believes Romney will use this time to show who he is as a person, not just a nominee.

Janet Cuthrell of Simpsonville is also serving as a delegate at the convention and expects to hear specifics from Romney on what he plans to do.
