Payne & Domke: Romney's Big Night

Download Audio

Thursday night is a big night for a longtime resident of Belmont, a graduate of Harvard Law and Harvard Business schools, and a former Massachusetts governor — Mitt Romney.

For the first time since 1924, the Republican National Convention has nominated a Massachusetts Republican.

And Thursday in Tampa, Romney will address the convention and the nation, in the biggest political moment of his life.

WBUR's political analysts, Democrat Dan Payne and Republican Todd Domke, joined Morning Edition to discuss Romney's big night.

This program aired on August 30, 2012.
