Thousands of delegates - including hundreds from Ohio - were stranded for hours after last night's session because of the shuttle bus system set up by the Republican National Committee.
Ohio GOP chairman Bob Bennett told the delegates at this morning's delegation breakfast that it won't happen again.
"We've got (Republican National Committee chairman) Reince Priebus with us this morning and I know a lot of you are going to want to give him an earful, but don't, because we are going to talk, and we will take care of it,'' Bennett said.
Adrien and Rick Segal of Fairfield, both honorary Ohio delegates here in Tampa, were eating eggs and sausage at the Ohio delegation breakfast Wednesday morning, talking about the excitement of being at the Tampa Bay Times Forum for the first night of the convention.
Adrien Segal was particularly impressed by the speech the nominee's wife, Ann Romney, delivered to the convention last night, telling personal stories about her life and marriage to a man who may become president.
Many of the nearly 500 Ohio delegates, alternates and guests were on the floor of the Tampa Bay Times Forum Tuesday night wearing special "Buckeye Badges,'' hand-made by Fran DeWine, the wife of Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.
Fran DeWine has painstakingly made the hundreds of badges for each of the last six Republican conventions.
They feature real buckeye nuts that come from the trees on the DeWine family farm near Cedarville.
"It's a lot of work, drilling through all those buckeyes,'' her husband said. "They're tough nuts."
