More than 25 percent of Massachusetts delegates at the Republican National Convention in Tampa are under 40 years old. And for most of them this is their first convention. And as the convention gets under way Tuesday, they are taking their seats in the front row of history.

WBUR’s Monica Brady-Myerov followed one new delegate, Elizabeth Mahoney, as she found her way into the convention hall for the first time.

This program aired on August 28, 2012.
