County has large convention delegation

Published 10:25pm Monday, August 27, 2012

“We have covered the gamut of this thing,” Renee Powers said of the party’s candidates. “We’re sending the message that we’re behind the Republican nominee. Mitt Romney has the experience and the vision to get us out of this mess. We want a president who puts his faith in free people and free enterprise, not a government-centered society.

“But while we have lost our way, we have not lost our fighting spirit. I look forward to working together to defeat President Obama this fall and to protect faith, family, freedom and opportunity in America.”

Renee Powers also went to the Republican convention in 2008, as a delegate for Gov. Mike Huckabee.

The convention schedule includes tours of the city, guest speakers, informational sessions and plenty of networking. Delegates are busy beginning at 8 a.m. each day, with the actual RNC convention beginning at 6 p.m. Romney will be nominated on Thursday.

Tom Powers said he and his wife view their political efforts through a Bible verse, Romans 13:1-3: “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”

“My personal desire is to restore leadership to the White House, and I am honored to serve,” Tom Powers said.
